Pet Portrait and Wildlife Artist

 I am a self taught Artist working mainly in Acrylic Paint and        light fast acid free Coloured Pencil. 

 Growing up in South Yorkshire I have drawn and painted   since I could hold a pencil. I have always had pets and have a    love for Wildlife, as children we had dogs, cats, a rabbit, guinea pigs, hamsters and fish.

 Walking in the Yorkshire countryside with our dogs was a part of our daily routine.

 We relocated when I was 16 to West Somerset, I now live in West Somerset at the foot of the  Quantock hills which we can see from our back garden and also close to Exmoor. I live with  my husband our 3 young boys and our springer spaniel Alfie. We spend a lot of time outside  exploring the surrounding countryside and spend our summers in North Devon. All these  landscapes and their wildlife inspire me in my artwork.

I have a real passion for my art, always developing new techniques and finding new materials.
