All of my watercolour paintings/illustrations are original, one off pieces. This gives a unique opportunity for us to create a piece that will capture your imagination, providing happy memories for years to come.
For each person to see that special piece which captures exactly what they were looking for, I try to place myself in the shoes of the customer. Using photographs, I develop an understanding of the person/people involved, place, animal or situation to picture exactly how the commission will come together. If appropriate I will ask to meet the customer to agree the final detail.
All commissions start at a price of £100 for an A4 size (11.5x8.2inch), which comes with a mount as standard.

I have always loved drawing from a small age, drawing in bed before we said goodnight! Copying from books or just drawing from my imagination. Always having a project on the go at home and my brother and I loved to pull the ‘art trolley’ out of the under stair cupboard most Sundays.
Throughout my art and design courses I’ve loved to draw, paint, be creative using mixed media and sew, creating gifts for the family. I particularly remember over a few months one year spending each visit with my Grandparents learning how to embroider. Sitting with my Nanny patiently listening and learning the art of creating such wonderful patterns with beautiful threads. After the duration had passed this journey came to an end on Mothers Day when I presented the embroidery on a tablecloth for my Mum, a treasured piece still.
Along side the watercolour painting I create which capture the character of countryside animals, I have also been exploring the fun characterful life of illustration. Therefore I have been
combining the watercolour but adding the use of an outline to give the illustrations depth. Combining all my skills and memories of past events that together have developed into these charming illustrations.
To help these grow I have collaborated with Tony Hollinshead MEd ©woodlandcreaturessweetpeastories and these charming creations are in the process of developing into a series of children’s stories. With Tony’s vast experience in the education setting and humorous outlook on life the characters come alive. With each story a song may also appear which Tony has written. His love of music, natural writing ability and fantastic connection with young people, shine in these imaginative stories.
