About me…

I am a Leicesteshire based artist with a history in Fashion & Textiles. A year ago I decided to paint ‘ranges’ of paintings in the same way I worked in fashion…

In Aug 2011 I had done 6 portraits of my family over the preceding 2 years but was unconvinced that I could call myself an artist.

After a week alone for the first time in 25 years I decided that the only thing that kept me from being who I wanted to be was me and that I needed to set myself a target & get focused.

I knew how much my kids could achieve in a week with a strict timetable and I drew one up for myself to include everything I normally did plus time to achieve my new goal- 50 paintings by the time I’m 50, this gave me 2 years to paint 50 paintings.

I told all my family and friends that this is what I was going to do and to my surprise everyone was really encouraging and enthusiastic.

A year in and I’m slightly behind but getting faster, the perseverance has meant that I’ve developed a style that I’m happy with and I know that I will hit my target by Aug 31st 2013. What I didn’t anticipate was all the lovely people I would encounter along the way and the way it has opened my world up 🙂
