My love of the North East coastline is fused with a passion for translating the colours, contrasts, shapes and patterns of my surroundings into the feelings that they evoke. Walking my dogs on the beaches around my Saltburn-by-the-Sea home in all weathers also provides inspiration for my paintings. I enjoy working with pastels, inks and paints to create a dramatic yet soothing style, drawing on my background in interior design. Based in Saltburn Studios, I am thrilled to be part of Staithes Festival for the first time this year.
