This is the latest of the series Love at the Seaside, painted for Knights Gallery in Paignton, it’s a little different to usual as instead of using watercolour on paper I painted acrylic onto canvas. It gives it more of a solid feel and is quite fun as the colours seem to consist of the […]

This is Dahlia Explosion! And looking for a home! This was great to paint being so big at a metre square, it felt really expressive to do and absorbed a lot of hours perfecting it! It’s different again from the Poppy and verges on the abstract almost, it seems to be more appealing to men […]

Flower Power


So this is the first in my latest series of floral canvas work. The original is actually a metre square! I absolutely loved painting this, trying to put power and structure into it. Camelot pictures want to take this image on and make prints from it, so I can’t wait to see how these turn […]

So this was the result of Friday’s inspiration, it has been a lot of fun to paint, I especially loved painting the seagulls and as requested by the gallery have added another dog as a companion to the other one!!!! It doesn’t seem right that everyone else should be in pairs except him – so […]

Last Monday, Tavistock Group of Artists had Rita Smith join us to give a lecture about painting in Antarctica. I have to say it was truely facinating! I couldn’t believe what wonderful opportunities are out there. Rita was asked to be the onboard artist of a cruise ship which went to Antartica. She taught students […]

Star signs


This week I am trying to finish my star sign series ready for a Psychic Craft fair next week! This one is Gemini and tries to take a new approach to star sign paintings. I have used elements of the tarot deck that I feel fit with the sign, for example the branch represents ‘wands’ […]
