I really enjoy sharing my studio, Pinterest, instagram and time with other art enthusiasts. I especially love making art with kids and teens, so please, don't be shy and show me what you are drawing or painting because I will be just delighted :D.

why I make pictures

I paint with the intention to share special moments, and hope that my paintings  remind us that with a moments pause, and a second's gratitude, we can instantly reconnect with the ever unfolding wonderfulness of life and to eachother.

My Story

When I was grungy teenager I painted all the time.. . everyone I knew was an artist of some kind or another. But when I had my first kid  I thought I had better get it together and grow up so I went to university became a lawyer and worked hard feeling increasingly spent, wrung out and disillusioned.

I needed a sea change! I decided to take a year away from corporate work and to just be fearless. The bills piled up, but I stayed directed towards love and simple living. Then I picked up a paint brush...

where Are my paintings?

This website. Or even better; in person at Salamanca Market (opposite St David's Park). If you are interested in purchasing an original and would like to visit my studio please send an email! :D Often you can see my latest work in progress on Instagram.



I love the feeling I get from your paintings... the feeling of being the heroine of your own story...
