Painting from my imagination. Van Gogh is one of my favorite artist! Painting is done with Acrylics, my favorite medium! I am fascinated by expressionism and Impressionism. I am still experimenting with different styles! Art is my happy place! Started painting again in 2019, so still learning and loving every minute!

Title or Location: Familiar Hedgehog
This was painted in 2020 during a time where we all reflected on life, ourselves, our connections past and present. Looking inwards as to what really mattered deep down.For myself I used artwork as my own therapy, reflecting on my Grandad's link to the Wildlife Trust and how some day I could give back myself, with the goal to creating a series of works based on woodland birds, animals and insects. The love and joy of all creatures big and small.

This work is one of a collection of works based on the Iron Giant that is now a world heritage site. In my childhood I spent a lot of time down near the viaducts and in the summer time me and my siblings would have picnics on the common ground nearby. The tea party situated in the painting is where we used to have our picnics during the long hot summers of the 1960s.As I got older we used to walk along the planks that were high up just underneath the viaduct and a lot of the planks were miss

Title or Location: Fire Dragon
I've recently discovered wire art as a medium through researching artists who explore memory, as a part of my Fine Arts degree. I immediately found an affinity with it and began to experiment. The dragon is a commission, he is my own design. I started with a simple drawing, built a frame, and then let my imagination run riot - this is the result.
