I have recently moved to Devon Summer 2018 with my partner and my wonderful old cat after living and working in Buckinghamshire for several years. I am looking forward to all the wonderful inspirations that Devon will offer me. For those that know me I have not cut all ties with Bucks and will return often.
I have always been creative and have a degree in textile design but it is in the last years that my passion for oil painting has really developed.
My inspirations are many. I have always loved animals and have had many pets over the years. I now have a real passion for pet portraits which are proving very popular. I am also inspired by travel, light, colour, texture and movement, and the pure absorbing joy of paint, gliding, blending and shaping across the canvas.
Following my degree I have had a vibrant varied career working in northern France and Paris designing fabrics for fashion houses all around Europe. Returning to London my career included selling fashion fabrics, Napoleonic antique hand printed wallpapers, top couture bridal wear and creating showhomes for new builds. I managed a delightful furniture furnishings store in Marlow for several years and now I have my own interiors shop in Tavistock - Cabana 77 West Street PL19 8AQ.
I take commissions mainly on pet portraits but will be happy to take on other subjects.
Should you wish to purchase a painting a print or a card, or enquire on a commission or simply to drop me a comment, please contact me or pop instore and I will be delighted to discuss your enquires and requirements.
