I enjoy walking and sketching along this wild coast, and through its mosaic of heath, wetlands, and tall forests. 

This experience is transcribed to works in my studio. My first love is the elusive and infinitely suggestive medium of watercolour, but I enjoy using gouache, inks, cold wax medium, and various print-making techniques. As well as working on paper, I challenge myself by using water media on board primed with gesso or clay – surrendering a lot of control in the process.  I am drawn to the romantic tradition of landscape painting and seek to express the interplay between solid forms and fleeting moods conjured by light and weather.

My husband Graham and I also run Hallowell Press from our home studio, producing artisan books with a local focus.
