Hare painted in watercolour

About me.


My previous work was with the pottery industry, where I worked as a paintress and designer. I last worked at Moorcroft Pottery designing and decorating products. After being made redundant from Moorcroft,


I chose to find my own path to live and work on a narrowboat, the canals have been a home for me and a wonderful adventure to finally start to paint paintings of interest to me. I now travel the canal network selling my artwork in various locations. I paint watercolour Pet portraits in very fine detail and also wildlife painting.


when I am not painting I am moving my boat to various spots in towns and villages, meeting people is a love of mine and I have made many friends on my trips. I also play the guitar and sing at festivals on the canals, when a village or town as one on, Audlem music festival has become a favouite of mine.
