I have been drawing and painting since I can remember. 

When I lost my beloved chocolate Labrador, Ziggy to cancer, I painted his portrait to channel my grief into something therapeutic and creative. This quite naturally transformed into my business and my passion, combing the two things I love - animals and art.

Living beach side in Florida has rekindled my love for painting landscapes and beach scenes. I find the use of ocean inspired colors exhilarating! There is a unique fascination watching the painting transform and come to life as each layer of paint is applied.

I find that painting different subjects keeps my mind and spirit alive and my paintings fresh and true to my style.

In the end, success for me is watching the expression on someone’s face when I deliver the finished painting. As long as my portraits evoke emotion, I’ll continue to paint.
