Painting and the seaside have always been my passions. From a young age, I was happiest with a paintbrush in my hand or splashing about in the sea. My paintings are vibrant because I have always admired bold and colourful art which catches your eye. I see the world around me in colour, shape and pattern. Beautiful coastlines provide perfect inspiration for my paintings.
I live in between Margate and Broadstairs and have many beautiful bays on my doorstep. Every morning, I look out over the sea and often capture an amazing sunrise. I am inspired every day from walking around the area in which I am lucky enough to live.
The beauty of nature means that the sea and sky are never the same, thus providing endless opportunities.
I use acrylics to paint bright and colourful seascapes of Margate and the surrounding areas. Acrylic paint enables me to create dynamic shapes with vivid colour.
I use flat brushes to create smooth surfaces and clean lines.
I am constantly inspired by the beautiful Thanet coastline. The unique landscape surrounding Margate, with its ever-changing skies and seas, provide a perfect subject for me to paint. As a local artist, I am forever taking photos as I explore the area, mesmerised by yet another dramatic sky or sea.
