Here in Saddleworth where I live, I’m fortunate to be surrounded by the natural beauty of the Yorkshire countryside. I’m always on the lookout for a view or subject that would make a good painting. Sometimes on my walks I might stop for an hour and do a quick sketch which I will later develop into a finished painting in the studio. The Wildflower Watercolour series began as photos of flowers I came across on my rambles.

Painting of the Month: "Chew Brook"

Chew Brook is an atmospheric watercolour capturing the winter light and rugged landscape of Chew Valley on the edge of the Peak District National Park.

This month, I am offering it to my newsletter subscribers at a special discounted price!

If you would like to buy this work, please click on the link above, or on the painting, where you can complete your purchase at my online shop.

(And it's also available as a card!)

In My Studio 

My studio is a very special space which brings me so much joy.

Located in a 19th-century cotton mill, it has large windows overlooking the river, high ceilings and lovely worn wooden floors.

There is no better feeling than stepping into the studio on a sunny day into this light, airy open room, furnished with preloved pieces from a local charity store.

The studio is both a workspace and gallery for my artwork.

I will be running workshops here starting Spring 2020.

You are very welcome to visit my studio anytime for a tour and a cup of tea. Just send me a message via email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or phone or text on 07979 603891.

I look forward to seeing you!
