I am an artist living and working on the Fylde Coast, Lancashire. Since leaving teaching in 2000, to concentrate on my painting , I have exhibited in local galleries with some success and taken commissions , mostly of people's pets. My first solo exhibition took place at Lytham Heritage Centre in 2006. This year I exhibited there in August again . My work includes oils, watercolour, pastel and charcoal studies. My subjects include animals (mostly my cats) people (portraits and life studies) and local views of St Annes on Sea where I live. Please take time to view my gallery.
