BIOGRAPHY I have been creating art for nearly twenty years since moving to Wales. The ever changing environment and landscape of Wales are a constant source of inspiration for my art, and I am particularly drawn to trees and how different they look in the four seasons throughout the year. I enjoy sketching in ink and watercolour when on location and then creating a painting using acrylic and mixed media techniques.
