"I specialise in producing miniatures and laminated bookmarks using watercolour studies and scenes to illustrate a variety of mottos and observations, often thought-provoking, frequently humorous and always relevant to everyday life. The subject matter ranges from flowers and wildlife to shoes and handbags, taking in everything in-between."

"My signature work has involved animal portraits and it’s always the colour and freedom of movement of watercolour that gives me great inspiration to create these individual characters with their own personalities. My landscapes are loose interpretations rather than a detailed representation of the surrounding countryside using mixed media and lots of strong vivid colour. The colour and freedom of my work catches the eye and draws you in, and once the colour has captured your thoughts, you are then prepared to take that second look, and then you may start to see things that other onlookers do not see!"

Local artists often display their paintings for sale at art exhibitions, which are usually held between Easter and the autumn period. Polkadot Pictures & Framing normally lists art exhibitions in the Wetherby and Leeds areas and will resume doing so once Covid-19 restrictions on art exhibitions are lifted.

"I've been drawing and painting ever since I could hold a brush, and went on to spend 4 years at art college where I gained a degree in Art. I worked as a creative designer in an advertising agency for many years, and now I draw and paint as a professional illustrator/painter, using watercolours, oils, pencil and pastels. I've even been in TV dramas as a courtroom sketch artist and on the big screen as a police sketch artist. I am commissioned for portraits, buildings, animals, humorous cartoons and caricatures, but my personal passion is for landscape paintings."
