Ever since childhoo099d my first passion has been creating art. I am a self taught artist and proud of that fact. Gradually over the years I’ve tried most mediums and this has led me to use mixed media more and more in my paintings.

I also paint on slate. This is not the kind of slate that is used for roofing but untouched pieces of slate found in disused slate mines and quarries. This slate has distinctive shapes and textures which lend itself perfectly to impressionist and abstract art.

I take commissions to paint babies, young children and peoples pets. However, as a freelance artist, I also enjoy painting landscapes, still life and adult portraits. Like all creative people I am always striving to get better and produce artwork that I feel proud of and am totally happy with, but I don’t know if that is ever going to happen!
