My studio is in my garden, its 'bijou' but there is a Westie shaped space for my dog William. I am happy to welcome visitors to the studio by appointment to view my current pieces or to discuss commissions or just to talk about my work.
I work with acrylic paint on canvas, these are either box boards which do not need to be framed as the outside edges are painted to compliment the painting, or stretched canvas which is best displayed in a frame of your choice, although increasingly clients hang them unframed.
I have been painting and drawing since childhood and have developed my skills and painting style during that time by practice, working with other artists as tutors, including courses at The Newlyn School of Art in Cornwall and by experimental work. My family has been sprinkled with artists over the generations so painting was always encouraged. I love working with colour, shape and texture exploring what happens when I apply paint to a canvas with a palette knife.
I am a creative photographer, capturing and selling images via picture agencies around the world. I am a member of the Royal Photographic Society and have achieved Associate membership. Follow this link to my photographic site Cats Whiskers Photography
