I’m an artist living and working in Withyham, on the edge of the Ashdown Forest
The timeless beauty of the Sussex and Kent countryside is something I’ve been lucky enough to enjoy while walking with my family and dogs for the past nine years.
And it’s my two dogs, Maggie and Dudley that inspired my painting. Looking at them one day, I decided to try combining my love for these two soppy Labradors with a love of fine art.
From my first portrait of Maggie, my business has grown, and I now have a varied portfolio of animal portraits, commissioned by owners and hanging proudly in local homes and businesses.
I work from photos using acrylic paints on canvas. Acrylic gives a wonderful texture, which I love, and really helps to convey the personality of the subject.
And it’s not just dogs that I paint: cats, cows and even a seagull have all featured in my work!
Many of my paintings are commissioned as gifts; others are for the proud owner themselves. Anything goes!
