A lively, pure watercolour of my brother’s and sister in law’s hens. I used lots of water added to drying paint to achieve lots of backruns which suggest a feathery texture.

Nature is my passion and inspiration for my art. I started out by photographing it, but now I love to paint it as well.
I have been painting with watercolour for many years now, and I am still amazed and continually excited by this most magical of mediums. I’m still on my journey of discovery; a journey which I hope will never end. Every time I pick up my paintbrush I wonder where the paint will lead me.
Another magical medium, which I am enthralled by, is encaustics.
