I was born and raised in Mumbles, Swansea, on the Gower peninsula of S.Wales. It is from an abundance of these beautiful scenic coastlines that have surrounded me throughout my life that constantly fuel my inspiration.
I have always been a practical, creative individual, learning from an early age where my strengths lay. I excelled in art throughout school and continued my study at Carmarthenshire College of Technology and Art, gaining a BA Hons majoring in Surface Pattern Design.
For as long as I remember I have been a lover of the sea,the beach, being outdoors and especially being creative. I have built up an ongoing collection of art via the medium of painting, photoart prints & framed pictures, greeting cards & home decor.
I sell locally & online (see below).
I feel blessed to be able to combine my desire to create and earn a living from it, I am always touched when I hear that people have pieces of my work in their homes.
My Paintings & Artwork
Within my paintings I strive to create a piece of art that evokes similar feelings to that of the actual scene.
That is, of being at one with the natural rawness of nature, the sky, the sand, the sea and the elements
and to create a feeling of escapism, freedom, harmony & restfulness taking us away from the daily g
I often dream of ideas in which to create my paintings or have random flashes of how I would like a
piece to appear. However, I also tend to just see what happens as I go along until I reach a point
where I feel content with the piece at hand.
They consist of a variety of media and I use texture, depth & movement to convey the mood.
I tend to paint in batches, using a series of colours and apply layers of paint simultaneously.
I apply several layers of paint and various other material, mainly using my hands and fingers
and only use a 'conventional' paintbrush for finer details.
I use photographs and sketches to create a scene and use my artistic license to create a
finished piece that is aesthetically pleasing.
I also really enjoy painting personalised pet portraits, take a look on my personalised pet portrait

I also indulge in photography and produce a collection of framed 'Photo Art' Prints which have a vintage /nostalgic appeal, I enhance my images to increase intensity & vibrance, from these I produce
a collection of framed pictures & portholes, printed cushions, greeting cards & more...
