About Me

20140402anneI was born on the Northumberland coast but have lived in the South East for the majority of my life.

I’ve been painting for many years starting out in watercolour which I mistakenly thought would be the easiest medium to work in – I now know better!  I have since added pastel, acrylic and pen and ink to the mediums I work in and have recently discovered oils although I have yet to tackle them properly.

I’m still inspired by the long beaches and sand dunes of my birth place and have painted many versions of Lindisfarne and Bamburgh Castle.

I have been an active member of Stevenage Art Society since 2000 and have been Vice Chairman for the last couple of years.  I am also a Professional Associate member of the Society for All Artists you can see my profile on their site here.

I exhibit my paintings in Stevenage Art Society’s three exhibitions per year.  I also exhibit in other local “open” exhibitions from time to time and take commissions.
