I always wanted to paint - for as long as I can remember - but life just got in the way.   

In 2003 I made the decision to follow my passion and left a successful career to provide the opportunity and space to pay serious attention to painting.  I happened upon an inspirational tutor who broadened my perspective by actively encouraging individual expression, experimentation and personal growth - and generally fed my passion for watercolour.  My confidence and skill set quickly grew as I explored new and different ways of using the medium, learning from both successes and failures along the way.

I have been a member of the the SWS since 2007 and Joint Secretary since 2009.  In 2007 I also made my first submission to the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours (RI) Open Exhibition. Ten of my paintings have since been exhibited in RI exhibitions and I have been accepted as a candidate for Membership of the RI.

Since 2008 I have collaborated  with other artists to stage independent exhibitions annually in Sussex.  

Watercolour is exciting, often surprising - and constantly throws out challenges.  My primary focus and inspiration will therefore always be the paint itself - and pushing boundaries beyond the accepted norm.
