I am from a beautiful rural county in England, and I have connections with a small island in the West Indies called Bequia.

My inspiration to paint comes from the natural beauty of the sea and land in these places. I spent many hours with my granddaughters, watching tropical fish, collecting shells and sea glass, dazzled by the gorgeous blues of sea and sky, a contrast to the earthy reddish browns and lush greens of rural Herefordshire.

Our family dogs have patiently sat for me to catch their personalities on paper. Country walks yield treasures to be captured in watercolour and acrylics.

I have exhibited and sold my paintings at the Oasis Gallery and Spring Pottery in Bequia, to customers world-wide, and in England.
