“My artwork has evolved over the years from being a hobby, attempting to sell paintings of weavers’ cottages at local art and craft shows, to becoming a serious passion for portrait painting. I want you to feel the passion in a painting as it evokes a memory which captures a special moment in your life”

My artwork acts as a strange sort of time travel – many a time I will aim to do half an hour and before I know it, two or more have passed. I get totally zoned out in a world of my own, so much so that cups of tea go cold

– usually an alien concept in my world! –
