I love making things. Painting, drawing and crafting – to me there’s nothing better! And if I can use my skills to make something special for someone, well that’s a brilliant thing.
My first love is painting and drawing scenes, especially anything on the River Thames. I have done commissions of boats along the River, Hampton Court palace, Chelsea and people’s homes. I can work from photographs but will also visit any local spot with you to find the perfect view.
My new love is woodworking. I source the wood myself from local areas where trees have already been cut and the logs are left to rot. I take them home to dry out and them give them love with a good sanding to bring out the gorgeous design of the natural grain. I then make signs for various spaces (indoor and outdoor), hand lettering each one and finished with two coats of yatch varnish to protect the wood. I also create other little bits from the wood such as toy boats, animals and name/letter plaques – all make a perfect gift for a child’s room.

Thank you for looking.
