Towards Ferring Country Centre

My paintings are all inspired by my surroundings. I live in West Sussex and have constant inspiration in the Land and Seascapes around me. Visiting seabirds are a constant delight. Oystercatchers, Egrets and Turnstones among them I’m often drawn to paint them.
Mostly working in Oil on canvas from my little studio at home in Ferring, from which I can see Highdown Hill, tonal values and the play of light is a delight to try and capture. My dogs soon draw me out of the studio and onto the beach where I scribble little sketches and take photos.
Simply put, I just Love to Paint.

Delighted to say that my Greeting cards, postcards and Prints are now stocked in the gift shop at Worthing Museum & Art Gallery.

On Sunday 8th April I’m excited to be going in with Photographer Cathy Verney in her BlueView Art Studio¬† located at 1 The Strand, Ferring , backing onto the carpark of the Bluebird Cafe.

We shall be open each Thursday morning 10 am-1pm and Sunday afternoon 1pm-6pm from April til November¬† Also when the sign is out we’ll be open

Do pop in to say Hi, have a browse and, if something takes your fancy, buy.  We will have a large stock of local postcards, Artists Greeting cards, Prints , Originals and lots of gift items too.
