My Artwork My Paintings are all about light. I have always had a fascination with shiny, sparkly things, the effects of oil on water and metallic colours. In my days in fashion design I earned the name ‘Magpie’ for my insistence on adding something shiny to every design whether it needed it or not! This work with textiles has given me a love of surface interest & I often incorporate textures such as sand, shiny beads & shells into the paintings. Much of my inspiration comes from the sea. As a child I was never happier than when walking on a sandy beach collecting shells and tiny jewelled pieces of glass worn smooth by the sea. I loved to swim in the ocean and watch the light bouncing off the moving surface of the water and listen to the surge of the waves. Many years later I fulfilled my mermaid dreams when I ventured beneath the waves during a holiday to the Caribbean. I discovered a whole new world of coral reefs and scuba diving became a passion and a rich source of inspiration for my artwork. This fascination with the sea and its many moods continues to this day and is reflected in much of my work. My paintings have been sold to clients as far away as Canada, Scandinavia and the Caribbean as well as the UK. About Me I originally trained as a fashion designer at the University of the Arts London ( London College of Fashion) & went on to a successful career in the fashion business. My designs for prints & embroideries have been seen in many high street stores around the world. I believe my work in fashion has given me a good understanding of colour and an ability to envisage how a painting will look in an interior setting.I have in recent years retired from the fashion business and now fulfil a long held desire to paint professionally. I now work from a small studio in West London. My paintings are in acrylic on boxed canvas, either painted right around the edges or painted a solid complimentary colour on the sides so are ready to hang without further framing if so desired. All are varnished to protect the painting.

I couldn't believe how quickly the piece was dispatched it arrived within a couple of days. The piece was well packed and in perfect condition. It looks better than the images and I'm extremely pleased with my new painting.Submitted by Customer 02/12/2017

I had an incredibly positive experience buying from Art Gallery. The painting is so amazing that every time I look at it hanging in my living room I smile. It brought so much beauty to the room. I was also very pleased with communication with the artist, prompt delivery and great service overall. Thank you.
We are pleased with the painting but is slightly redder than we thought it would be. That is no issue, its hard viewing paintings on the internetSubmitted by Steve E 05/01/2015

The service was very good but I did find it difficult to seek out an piece of artwork that I liked. I think the website could have better search criteria's.Submitted by Kastur H 20/01/2014
