Here is my Art space.

My work creates 'conversation piece art', with fantasy elements in bright lively colours. I take scenes from buildings and places to bring light, colour and interest in illustrative watercolour style.

In Montcuq on Sundays at our pop-up stall there will be a few original artworks for sale and a selection of prints in frames and homewares available. Prints are on 100% coton archive paper, pigment ink and are giclée prints of my popular unique watercolour illustrations.

CONTACT ME to order a bespoke illustration of your home, family, birthday party, wedding venue or business. I can paint it to sit beautifully in its own space or add elements including family, pets, fantasy elements both past and present!.

I hope you’ll feel inspired and  joyful by what you see.
All items are unique, and may be completely personalised for you to enjoy, or a completely new art piece including your elements.                       

The artwork could be a quirky gift for the person who has everything, or for someone really difficult to buy for!

BESPOKE details: I can draw and paint a variety of buildings or scenes in watercolour and ink (line and wash) style, capturing both the property, landscape, pets or people. To add to the story, I can bring a comic twist to any painting but onlyif required. These are completely hand drawn onto 300gsm watercolour paper and painted with fade resistant professional pigment watercolours including Daniel Smith, Sennelier and Winsor & newton watercolour (aquarelle) paints. There is no digital options for bespoke paintings, it is a 'real' painting in original form and will be sent to you or the recipient. I will email a simple low resolution (smart phone) photo of the finished painting. The painting will be the perspective of the photograph you email, I will remove or add as you require i.e. trees or posts obscuring attractive features. I generally do not add satelite dishes, tv or masts. It will not be a photo-realistic picture and will be a suggestion of detail. I am asked to add dogs on lilos in swimming pools, sunbathing cats in sunglasses, and ducks flying with balloons....I think you many get the idea!                                                                                                                            I reserve the right after delivery, to display a copy on my website or social media. No addresses will be given and verbal or written permission will be requested.

No Original bespoke paintings will be copied for sale or reproduction. No Copyright is held for bespoke artwork unless discussed, therefore you are free to copy and reproduce your original bespoke work.  

*Copies of non bespoke originals purchased are strictly not for any form of reproduction and I reserve the right to print copies again by discussion.


Let us say I am an artist that if likened me to an actor in the theatre, it would be comedy not shakespearean acting however the skill to present will remain equal....

Pet portrait with a difference!

Watercolour and ink, of beloved family pets over 2 decades. This is a pet portrait with a difference and how life and fun around a pool can even be with cats, although never swimming! The main character was known to join in the water fun...and we all smile.
