I'm in love with colour and I'm in love with strong, vibrant, luminous watercolour. For me, although the act of painting is very much about the subject, it's also very much about exploring the wonderful interactions of the paint. I use strong washes of wet into wet colour often using mixed media and experimental techniques to achieve exciting effects and textures. Although I’ve been painting with watercolour for many years now, I am still amazed and continually excited by this most magical of mediums. I’m still on my journey of discovery; a journey which I hope will never end. Every time I pick up my paintbrush I wonder where the paint will lead me.

I undertook a weeks solo Artist's Residency at Cape Cornwall in Cornwall

I use strong washes of wet in wet colour, often using mixed media and experimental techniques to achieve exciting effects and textures.

 

Since my recent move to the coast I have also been striving to capture the spirit of the sea in a new medium for me: acrylic paint.
