What do I paint?
I combine a variety of painting methods to create something unique, affordable, unique and something that is treasured by you.
Animals: Horses, cats, dogs, ducks, sheep - even a mouse! Close up or in combination with special places or people.
People: Capturing people at a special time, or a special person and friendship.
Places: A special place to you or friends and family. Wedding venues, a memorable view or just somewhere you like.
Check out commissions and the galleries for some inspiration!
A bit about me
I love creating! It has a very special place in my heart... quite literally!
When I was 46, I developed a heart condition and, as part of the road to recovery, I was encouraged to do something relaxing. So I started painting. I hadn’t done any art since I was at school but, bizarrely and out of nowhere, I had developed a new skill! Paintings for friends and family soon grew into more and more commissions! I started to combine different media - traditional watercolours, acrylics, sometimes the latest technology; inks and even crayons; to create something quite new.
I decided to raise money for charity including The British Heart Foundation, Epilepsy Action and Children with Cancer. I also supported a range of other charities and local causes raising £1000s in donations and in kind.
Prices vary depending on detail and size. I charge between £90-£100 for an original, approximately A4 size multi media piece of work.

What will I need from you?
To keep things simple, I base my work on your photos. I can help choose the best image for your painting, or leave the choice to you.
Photo top tips
Outdoor photos, taken in natural light, and in focus are best. Eye colour is essential so no red eye!
Quirky is good! As long as its a photo you like. I can turn selfies and snaps into something original and special if the photograph in focus!
Don't worry about backgrounds. I don't see that! Although there are many examples of where I have painted people and pets in landscapes as well.
