I paint mainly in watercolours but experiment with mixed media by adding inks, oil pastels etc. to a basic watercolour to give texture and vibrancy to the work. I also enjoy using oils when time allows.
As for subject matter I love painting the natural world whether it be animals both wild and domestic, flowers or landscapes. Whatever the subject I try to capture the natural beauty of what I see.
I usually work from photographs mostly my own but for wild life I am very fortunate in having the permission of two very talented wild life photographers to use their images as source material. They are Richard Steel, based in England and Jeff in Costa Rica.
I am a member of the Altrincham Society of Artists and the Grosvenor Art Society.
