About The Artist
Art has been part of my life for as long as I can remember, however it is only in recent years that I have specialised in Animal Art, after retiring from teaching, where I held the position of Art co-ordinator.
My main work is creating pastel portraits from photographs of people’s cats, dogs and horses (or any other pet)! The aim of each portrait is to capture the true character, personality and expression of the pet, enabling people to enjoy and cherish them for a lifetime. The key to capturing your pet is through the eyes. When this is right, the rest follows.
I had the opportunity to go on Safari to Botswana and see the most magnificent animals, first hand, in their natural habitat; such a privilege! Since then I have developed a portfolio of wildlife Animal Art. For this I use Pastels and Graphite pencils, where very fine detail can be achieved.
Art Groups / Exhibitions
I am a member of the Ringwood Art Society, the Society of All Artists and the Society of Equestrian Artists. I have exhibited work locally, in London and in New York. I am also linked to the Worldwide Veterinary Service (WVS). 20% goes to the WVS, when I sell a painting through their organisation.
I accept commissions and am happy to paint any animal. I feel very fortunate to finally be doing what I love.
