Artist - Paintings, Sketches and Cards
My artwork is mainly Land Seascapes, with the occasional dog portrait (mainly my own gorgeous pup). My paintings are inspired by a love of the sea/sailing, living near the Hampshire UK coast and from dog walking out in the fresh sea and countryside air. some of my paintings have been painted or at least started whilst onboard boats in and around the Solent. Appropriately enough one of my favourite mediums is Watercolour... I love the feel and fluidity of the watercolour paint to soften and colour a scene. I often use permanent pens to sketch and then add watercolour as it makes me feel like I’m being brave lol. The immediacy and permanence of the pen makes me be more spontaneous, and then the subtly of the watercolour softens the scene and adds richness and tone. I also use Acrylics and recently started using gorgeous creamy textured Oils. Painting and sketching are one of the things that have really helped me feel more like myself after previously suffering from re-occurring complex PTSD. Getting lost in the process of sketching or painting a natural land/seascape helps me destress and creates a sense of calm, with the positive butterfly happy high when I feel its going really well.
