Watercolour is my preferred medium and my paintings feature nature, birds, children, sea, landscapes and Sumi e.
Sumi e has been a wonderful discovery. I love this style of painting, an art form that distills the essence of an object or scene in the fewest possible strokes. A few carefully placed broad strokes that fade off abruptly, a few thin lines and a dot, and a bird is clearly called into being on the paper. Still a long way to travel on this.
I have done mainly commission work, sold at flea markets to all and sundry and show in a small local gallery where I live.
I still have no signature style that I can see - and that is something I really would love to have - to be recognised by that. I have so many likes that I try all and I have to be....'Jill of all trades'.

Art does make a unique gift that you can contribute to this sometimes colourless world, and if given as a gift your recipient will treasure this for years to come
