I strongly believe that following a creative life is good for the soul. In addition to my writing I love to sketch and paint. My water colour and pen images are inspired by the sea, the sea swimming I love and the coastline of Bryher, Isles of Scilly. 

I have pieces of work available at Gallery Tresco, Tamarisk Gallery on St Marys. I am also happy to show pieces of work from home.


If you wish to view any artwork please get in touch via my contact page 

I have a collection of printed cards, with envelopes. These are printed from original artworks.

Available in a set of five for £12.50 inc UK p&p. Contact page
