About Me

I grew up in the beautiful Lincolnshire Wolds, surrounded by wildlife inspiring my love of nature and my passion for horses which were always around me.

Although I loved painting I never had any formal art training and, instead studied to be a nurse and when the opportunity arose, I took up painting again turning to watercolours.

Going to polo matches in the early 80s enthralled me. The speed, and action, and the thrill of the game.

Recently I have been fortunate to have access to some amazing photographs and my love for polo has been re-kindled!

I use Schmincke water paints on Saunders WaterfordRough paper, as the paint reacts well with my loosestyle. I have just started using Pastels on black for startling contrast creating drama.

Commissions keep me busy so in my spare time I love to explore new techniques.

I love painting polo pictures, horses or anything that inspires and challenges me.
