I am a full time artist from the U.K. specializing in peaceful and meditative paintings,often from a mystical and spiritual perspective.I like to make light and color dance on my canvas to create a magical harmony. I am married to Simon Small, the author of the incredible mystical novel 'Star Pilgrim'. It explores profound questions about the meaning of life within a great story.(available from Amazon and all good bookstores on kindle or as printed copy)
Many interesting and exciting avenues have opened for me since joining Fine Art America. Prints of my paintings are now quite literally shipped worldwide to destinations as far as Australia.My painting 'Angel' is making her debut in the 2015 Doreen Virtue Angel calendar.She can still be purchased for licensing but the rights have been sold for her use as a calendar for that year.
To my delight, I was recently asked by Talbot Perry Simons (Hollywood award-winning film maker and screen writer) if he could use my painting 'Bridge of Dreams' as the front cover for his new screenplay 'The Arrangement'. Thank you Talbot!
Having said all that,I must say that promoting myself does not come easily or naturally to me.My life is focused on being as present and as open as possible to the 'Mystery', and I am increasingly drawn to silence and a degree of solitude.
Many have told me that my paintings evoke a feeling of peace, comfort, hope, connectedness or enchantment. I am so grateful and fortunate to be able to share in this way.
I have exhibited art widely across the U.K. over the years, and also in Hawaii, with thanks to my fellow artist and outstanding painter of Hawaii land and seascapes, Alden Heglund.
My work has been used for book covers, brochures, magazine covers and articles. The latest interview about my art journey is in the beautiful U.S.art and culture magazine 'Musiety'. My paintings, 'Glastonbury Abbey Lily Pool' and 'Blue Mountain Pool' have both featured as the 'Musiety 'front cover.
Currently, my two main areas of expertise are in combining acrylic with pastel, and with painting in the exquisite and unusual medium of pigmented beeswax (encaustic). This explains why I have two very distinct styles. I have developed my own unique methods and styles in each of these mediums.
