I am a self-taught, local amateur artist who has lived and worked in Weymouth all of my life.

My inspiration comes from the beautiful scenery of Dorset and the Jurassic coast.

I have 3 amazing children, who are all grown up now. I used to paint in watercolour when they were little and when I had the time. I now paint in oil and acrylic, which I love to mix.

I was drawn back to painting 2 years ago when I was diagnosed with an illness that affects my mobility. The need to keep busy, plus my love of painting has kept me constantly learning and challenging myself.
