BACK TO GALLERY
Having not painted since high school and with no formal art qualifications, I took up watercolours at the age of 40 tutored by fellow Iceni member Hazel Rush. After several years painting landscapes, I discovered and quickly became hooked on botanical painting. I took a series of short courses with botanical artist Elaine Searle in Holt, Norfolk, then went on to complete the Society of Botanical Artists' Distance Learning Diploma Course, graduating in May 2014. I now rarely paint anything but floral subjects.
