A little bit about me.....
I am a qualified life coach and a self taught artist originally from London. Having lived in several countries around Europe and a few places in the UK, my husband and I have now settled in the beautiful county of Wiltshire.
I have been painting and drawing for as long as I can remember. Over the years I have developed my own mixed media style, where I add different materials to generate unusual textures to my canvases; anything from sand, glass beads, to handmade paper and cotton thread.
Once the texture is complete, I get busy on my unique layering process to add the colours. Where possible I like to add a finishing touch of gold or silver leaf to bring a little magic.
Science and nature are my biggest influences; anything from stunning images of the cosmos, to delicate colours and textures found on an old rusty door. In my previous role as a microbiologist, I was always fascinated by the photographs taken with the electron microscope. I am still heavily attracted to these images and often find these themes creeping into my artwork.
I particularly enjoy working with my clients on a commission piece. It's such a delight to take their brief and then to embark on a journey to produce a unique piece of art just for them.
I am also the founder of Paint your Happy! *
This is my own creative programme where I combine life coaching, art skills and my life experience to help my clients rediscover a positive outlook on life. This enables them to regain their confidence, self worth and self esteem in a safe, creative environment.
Keeping up to date with my art couldn't be easier, you can follow my blog here and also find me on Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook.
