I’ve been very quiet on the website for some time now but now all is to be revealed. I’ve been exploring a new medium!
Last year I was sitting on the shoreline in Looe watching the waves gently kissing the beach, I was mesmerised by the water, the foam, the shells, stones, rock texture, the whole thing so relaxing and tranquil. How do you capture that? After some investigation I saw a demonstration of Acrylic fluid art and it just blew my mind, a whole new stream of ideas and passion flowed through me, I hadn't been this excited for many a year and so for months I’ve lived, practiced, dreamed and explored this new medium. I had to construct a whole new studio in Callington in my husband’s business premises just to accommodate the sheer size and mess that this art form makes (the main work table (1800x600mm) and the drying tables, racks and heat chambers and spray area that is required to make work like this. Plus a whole load of new art materials.
BUT I’m here at last. Now having learned to create fabulous fluid pours which I amalgamated with my own animal/fantasy art to create a whole new style of embellished Fluid Artwork.

I love dreamy animal and nature inspired themes and am about to produce a new series of works inspired by Cornish legends of mermaids and myths which have some foundation in my existing body of work as you can see throughout the website.
Underwater themes have always been important to me and this little seahorse was taken from a picture I took in Florida. At the time of making this I had been creating my first mermaids and had used sea horses as a detail but decided to focus on this little creature instead.
This dreamy Mermaid was originally an idea for a bookmark but as the work progressed it developed it's own character and was eventually named Morwenna. It's a mixed media canvas with some wonderful gold and bronze tones in the flowing hairy
Winter and snow just seems to be a reoccurring theme in my pictures of animals in the wild. These hares snuffling in the snow makes me want to turn up the heat as I look out the window at home.
