I am an artist and photographer based in Devon. Having had a very varied career I eventually undertook a degree in fine art in my 60s. My passion is for flowers and now that includes the Devon countryside. This passion has now extended to the coast, I am so lucky to be near the Jurassic Coast with its wonderful scenery.

My paintings which are inspired by the Devon countryside are mixed media using acrylics, inks and watercolours, occasionally oil paint. The most recent work  of coast and countryside is in watercolour,  which I started during the beginning of the Covid Lockdown. The woodlands  here are particularly lovely in spring when the bluebells bloom and the colours of the sea around Sidmouth are perpetually changing.

All artwork is available as limited edition prints, original paintings can be purchased on my Etsy shop
