One of my earliest memories was her father, a great lover of impressionist art, taking me to a JMW Turner exhibition at the Tate Gallery. That was it - I was going to paint like this genius one day and ten years later in 2005, I gained a Diploma in Art and Design.
I re-ignited my passion for painting in 2014 after meeting a renowned artist who introduced me to oils and the palette knife.
I quickly developed my own signature style, focusing on the natural beauty of the countryside that I am so lucky to be surrounded by. With an emphasis on colour and light and how one affects the other at different times of the day, Turner's artistic inspiration is never far from my thoughts. The process of layering and blending the palette knife work to obtain the right tone, texture and light is so important to me.
To date, my paintings have found homes all over the UK with several finding their way to the USA and Australia.
2016 will see my first solo exhibition in the UK in November.
