My very first landscapes were inspired by the rolling hills and thatched cottages of Dorset in England, where I was born and raised.

I am self taught and started my artistic journey by painting delicate and detailed thatches in oil. Today, I still enjoy capturing

the multitude hues of brilliant greens England is known for, as well as the beautiful peaceful rows of thatch cottages adorned

with brilliant blooms in peaceful villages.


Since moving to Canada, the Okanagan caught my attention with its unique light, orchards and vineyards, and I found myself

compelled to capture this unique region in my favoured medium pastel.  I discovered also, that when used on velour paper

it never failed to bring out the beauty and mystique of the Rockies, and the brilliant light shimmering off the lakes scattered

throughout the Okanagan region.
