"Light, atmosphere and a wonderful surface texture"
"A very exciting exhibition of light and drama. We shall enjoy living with such wonderful paintings"

 I thoroughly believe learning is fun and we are programmed to learn in a relaxed state through play. I hope some of you will join me in art sessions over the autumn.  We need to have things to look forward to at the moment!
Hope you ENJOY the new website and the paintings and that my love of light and water comes across. Some of my favourite places are sea places  which you may know well - Cornwall, Devon, west coast of Scotland, Scilly Isles, Poole, Bermuda....
Check out the new shop  on your travels round the site and yes get in touch! I want to know what you think.
You are welcome to visit the studio by appointment.
