Since leaving teaching, I have worked as a freelance artist for over two years now.
Much of my large oil paintings are inspired by landscape, specifically trees: their very presence, the way they are sited within a landscape and the fact that they are around for generations, sometimes hundreds of years, attracts and inspires me.
I have also have been developing my bespoke hanging card designs, and my absolute love of all things “Christmassy” means that I am never short for inspiration, from various childhood films through to favourite traditional carols.
