I am a full time artist from the U.K. specializing in peaceful ,meditative and enchanting paintings,often from a mystical and spiritual perspective.I like to make light and color dance on my canvas to create a magical and tranquil harmony.All my art is traditionally hand painted on canvas or paper but retains a fresh and contemporary feel. It is the result of many years of experience and dedication.It includes realism,impressionism,and fantasy.My expertize is in painting in acrylic and /or pastel and also in the exquisitely beautiful and unusual medium of melted beeswax (encaustic art).I have developed my own unique styles in these mediums .
I am married to Simon Small, the author of the incredible mystical novel 'Star Pilgrim'. It explores profound questions about the meaning of life and includes a thought provoking and very believable 'alien' encounter within a great story.(available from Amazon and all good bookstores on kindle or as printed copy.)
Prints of my paintings are reguarly shipped to destinations worldwide.My painting 'Angel' will be appearing in the beautiful 2015 Doreen Virtue Angel calendar.She can still be purchased for licensing but the rights have been sold for her use as a calendar for that year.
To my delight, I was recently asked by Talbot Perry Simons (Hollywood award-winning film maker and screen writer) if he could use my painting 'Bridge of Dreams' as the front cover for his new screenplay 'The Arrangement'. Thank you Talbot!
Many have told me that my paintings evoke a feeling of peace, comfort, hope, connectedness or enchantment. I am so grateful and fortunate to be able to share in this way.
I have exhibited art widely across the U.K. over the years, and also in Hawaii, with thanks to my fellow artist and outstanding painter of Hawaii land and seascapes, Alden Heglund.
My work has been used for book covers, brochures, magazine covers and articles. The latest interview about my art journey is in the beautiful U.S.art and culture magazine 'Musiety'. My paintings, 'Glastonbury Abbey Lily Pool' and 'Blue Mountain Pool' have both featured as the 'Musiety 'front cover.
