I usually start with an idea or colour and my work varies from pure abstract and abstract expressionism to impressionism. My impressionist style tends to focus on either floral work or landscapes and seascapes . You will always find in my painting textures as I am known for my textures in both abstract and with my landscapes . I use a variety of media and always work on canvas preferably high quality fine linen . oil and mixed media on deep boxed canvas . This painting was named after visited Bora Bora in the South Pacific in 2016 Wonderful colours vivid blues,purples and mint green .

I trained as an artist and studied a Foundation Course at Wakefield School of Art and Technology in , West Yorkshire .I learnt traditional drawing skills , painting ,nude drawing,sculpture,graphics,ceramics , photograghy ,and three dimensional design . I went onto to study BA in Fine Art and Sculpture in 1979 at Winchester School of Art ,Hampshire. I became disilluisioned with the system because you could not sell your work in traditional galleries at the time because I was not a "Known Name ". I really hated the snobbery which was attached and noticed alot of students were working in bars to make ends meet . I decided then I would continnue to paint but I trained as a nurse and a midwife which I practiced alongside my painting . I sold work privately over the years but everything changed in 2009 when I turned professional .Finally someone recognised I had a talent and I joined gallery.co.uk .Through them I have become a best selling artist and ranked 16 in the United Kingdom out of thousands of Artists . Other galleries quickly followed art2arts.co.uk,rippinghamart,londonart.co.uk,artfinder.com, affordablebritishart.co.uk,saatchiart.com,geminera.com. I have sold work worldwide as well as the United Kingdom,Dubai,Switzerland,South Africa, Australia ,Denmark,Belguim,Ireland,Channel Islands, Spain,United States and Canada
