At that time I was running my own gardening business full time, so the art had to fit in with that. It was still dogs I loved to paint, so it was a natural progression to take on pet
portrait commissions. It started with friends, then friends of friends and the next thing I was sending pet portraits out to America! At that point, it was hard to fit it all in and feel I had the
time to explore my style, so I reduced my gardening work and started to concentrate on setting up my art business.
In 2016 I began teaching my free flow methods to small groups of beginner artists. The pleasure of helping people unlock their painting potential, seeing their faces light up when they discover
they can paint too, makes me happy
So today I still continue to learn and take huge pleasure in painting with watercolour. I strive to keep my work loose, free and fresh
It’s an unpredictable medium but it’s magic and I just adore it!
