Hi, let me thank you for taking the time to look at my website. I am a local artist, married with five children and live in Seaford, East Sussex. With a degree in Communication Design, I have worked as a graphic designer and illustrator for a small publishing company for ten years.
Art has always been a passion of mine and now I reproduce my paintings and illustrations in the form of framed prints, greeting cards and wedding stationery. Most of these are sold at local fayres and art events. I have also had the good fortune to meet many talented people and make many new friends through this, which encourages me to continue painting.
If you are interested in seeing my artwork and talking to me about it please keep an eye on the home page for details of upcoming events or send me a message on the Contact Me page.
The Inspiration For My Work
I have enjoyed both black and white landscape photography and painting, the latter of which is what I enjoy doing most now!
Growing up by the seaside meant enjoying nearly every day of the summer holidays down on the beach - weather it be at Seaford beach, enjoying the sand at Tidemills, walking over Seaford Head down to Hope Gap or catching the bus to East Dean and climbing down the steps to the beach at Birling Gap.
My brother and I would play in the rock pools collecting shrimps and crabs and go exploring, sharing a picnic under the cliffs or in some cosy sheltered spot that we found! Then there was fossil hunting and discovering caves, collecting starfish and all sorts of shells too, which this coastline was very rich in when I was a young girl.
This area now holds a lot of magical interest and deep affection for me. Whenever I take a walk over the cliffs or visit many of the beaches along this stretch of coastline with my family, I have very fond memories, which have inspired much of my work.
