A pleasure to meet you...
I am originally from the
UK, and I graduated from Art & Design College in London, and after graduating I went on to do a photographic apprenticeship and a City and Guilds in photography. For most of my career in London, I worked as a production manager in West End advertising agencies and then later in magazine production.
In 2000, I moved to Canada, and returning to my design roots, opened a graphic design business. I am an award-winning songwriter, musician and performer, and I have produced two albums and has designed album covers for many other musicians. There are few pursuits that are not creative in my world from designing contemporary garden landscapes and water features, to watercolour, acrylic and other mixed media. My latest artistic passion brings me full circle, revisiting some of the techniques I explored during my early artistic career.
Using pen and ink and watercolour, I love creating detailed animal and nature paintings and highly stylized abstract works
Most of my work is inspired by nature and the beautiful Comox Valley on Vancouver Island. When I am not painting and enjoying the serenity of the place she calls home, I can be found gardening and playing music with friends.
