The Natural World, her people, her abundant wildlife, those are the things that most inspire my work. I aim to breathe life into each painting, capturing personalities and really bringing them to life. Each piece is highly detailed with a great deal of time and focus applied painstakingly to achieve the realism I strive for. Painting in this manner ensures each piece looks just as good up close and personal as it does viewed from a short distance.
I exhibit locally with Brighouse Art Circle, of whom I am a long standing committee member. In our most recent exhibition I am proud to have been awarded “Best in Show” by public vote for my painting “Parsnip, Mummy Bear”. I also exhibit Nationally with Association of Animal Artists (AAA) and Northern Artists. I am extremely privileged to be included within these two groups of exceptionally talented artists, both of which count some big names in the art world among their members.
