Coming from a small town called Tenby in Pembrokeshire, Wales, I was surrounded by beaches and pretty buildings as a child. This sparked an early interest in capturing beauty through art, particularly of landscapes. Studying art in school I loved the freedom of expression it gave me, leading to one of my proudest achievements: an A grade at A level. I was taught Art through a wide variety of mediums, but developed a particular love for painting, working particularly with Acrylics and mixed media, exploring with a variety of textures from paper to egg shells and Polly filler.
Painting brings peace, a sense of accomplishment, and it allows me to capture the beauty I feel so blessed to have experienced. I love how painting always challenges me, how I can repaint areas or go with an unintended brush stroke to create my masterpiece, allowing hours of fun to pass without noticing! God has blessed me with a talent to share with others and I hope the viewer can enjoy a moment of escape from the present through my paintings.
I have since had commissioned opportunities painting portraits and special places/moments which has challenged both ability and style of painting.
I hope you see why I love art and heck it may even inspire you to request the pleasure of me painting one for you!
