Since the death of my husband in 2015, I had to pause my charity work raising money for Big Cat conservation. I have resumed this work, beginning with the series of water colours - cats in action. I started with Cheetahs, then added studies of Lions and Tigers mating/fighting. Recently I started working more in watercolors initially inspired by my grandchildren and now client commissions. This watercolor work led to a series of dance paintings capturing movement and the sensual spirit of the performers. The abstract Glass series was in oil. Prints are available of the Dancers and Glass. This collection is growing so check-in regularly to see the latest work. I am accepting a limited number of portrait commissions. They can be produced from your favourite photographs or if you are local to the Scottish Borders we can take pictures of the subject. Please contact me if interested.
