'All That Glitters'
I love the sea and my daily walks along the beautiful Ayrshire coast. I love painting en plein air as in this painting 'All that Glitters', trying to capture the sea in paint or pastel - it's colour, movement, mystery - is something I never get tired of trying to do. I like to create an impression of my subject and the moment I am in and to provoke feelings of delight in the looker.
'Evening Light, Millport'
Millport on the Isle of Cumbrae is one of my favourite places - I have holidayed there since being a wee girl, and continue to love taking my own family there too. I have a series Millport of paintings created over the years, and continue to add to this regularly.
'In This Together'
With the third lockdown weighing heavy on my mind, this - very uncharacteristic painting for me - just evolved. When I look at it, it's very interesting, as there appears to be a large, ominous, foreboding presence to the far left. All the other 'characters' (buildings) are tucked tight together - little lights of positivity flickering in the windows - but with one clean break in the chain of support.
Art can definitely subconsciously expresses our inner thoughts!
Much of my work is available as prints in various sizes. I happily accept commissions and thoroughly enjoy the journey from concept of a client's artistic wish to fulfilment.
