About

I work and live in Birmingham, UK, with my husband and my dog. I have been painting in my spare time over the years. In this collection of pictures I show a selection of works I did from Lockdown 2020 onwards . 

I observed my surroundings and noticed the objects in the home and in the gardenThe still life paintings mainly focus on interesting shapes and iconic designs of antique or classic objects. I love painting the organic ripples, shapes and movement of material that feature in my work. These paintings evoke elements of nostalgia ; vintage  but not from a specific time. The Garden paintings show the outside of my home with a new appreciation of the environment in which I live.

 

The Birds page are my most recent paintings.  I chose to paint birds that are well known and recognisable with their own distinctive shape, colouring  and character.

I like working with acrylic paints, they dry fast and you can be bold knowing you can paint over anything you're unhappy with. I like  rich  bright colours and once I've started a painting I can work quickly and get in the flow.
