This page is all about me! A fine art photographer and visual storyteller, writer and blogger. I create feel good art you will enjoy having on your walls. I use my own photographs and then work on them digitally to develop the images further using the application of colour and textures.
My art and writing covers a range of subjects, reflecting my Brighton background, my life in Italy, the countryside and my love for animals.
I was an Artsy Shark Featured Artist in August 2016. I have won several awards including Best Photopainter 2015 by CQ Magazine and Special Merit and Special Recognition Awards from Light Space & Time Online Gallery in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019.
What Got Me Started Creating?
Born in Brighton, England, I lived and worked in Sussex but now live in a beautiful old farmhouse up a mountain near Paciano in Umbria, Italy. It is my idea of peace on earth. I live with my husband Barnet Boy, two dogs and a menagerie of cats.
At school I had this crazy art teacher – I loved her enthusiasm and thrived in her classes. She made my art about me, not how everyone else did things. Once I started reading books on famous artists I couldn’t stop adding to my library. I also couldn’t stop drawing and painting and that enthusiasm has never dimmed. Now I have added photography and digital painting to my artistic endeavors and attack them with the same gusto!
My blog is about me, my art and where I live in Central Italy, marketing and reviews, animal stories (particularly cats!) and various ramblings thrown in as subjects take my fancy. I post to my blog regularly and welcome comments.
