I have been living in Jersey for two years where 'Hey-Hester' and her friends have blossomed. I sell original paintings through galleries, or as private commissions. I have also had two solo exhibitions (both sell outs), and was invited to be Artist in Residence at the St. Lawrence Annual Fair.
Last year I took part in Channel Four's 'Watercolour Challenge' which was televised in September 2001. Subsequently, my painting from the series has been exhibited in The Mall
Galleries in London.
I work in acrylic and literally paint whatever comes in to my head! I may do a very rough pencil sketch before starting a painting, but no more than this as I find my final piece then loses its energy and spontaneity.
