I was born in Zimbabwe, coming to England in 1979, where the whole style of my art was necessarily changed. From oil abstracts I started painting flowers in watercolour, and from there moved on to rather whimsical imaginative work with the sea forming a background interest in so many of them.
I am fascinated by detail and this is something which shows in my work. My love of poetry inspired me to illustrate poetry of my choice over the last few years. However, landscapes in oils with the ever changing sky and clouds above it is the main interest in my work at present.
I spent many years teaching both adults and students and I hope my work might encourage others to paint.
