Art Collage Flowers and Birds Painting - Dreaming of Spring

New Collage Spring Flowers and Birds.
I get to this time of year and I long for Spring and flowers and the return of the sun.
My new painting is based on this longing. The original has now sold out but it is available as a print on wood in my etsy shop.

Fairytale Ballerina Princess Painting - Letting go

Fairytale Ballerina Painting - Letting go
This is a painting I finished last month which has now sold but is available as a print in my etsy shop.
It is based on the idea of having to sometimes let go of the things we love in the hope that they will come back to us of their own free will.

Friends are magical Painting

This is a commissioned painting I did at the end of January for a lady in London.
It was for her friends birthday and she wanted it to reflect their friendship.
I was really pleased with how it turned out.

Let's start at the beginning - My Childhood

I was born in France in 1973 the third of three girls, two years later I was to become the proud older sister to my younger brother.

My childhood was a very happy one filled with happy memories of freedom, exploring nature, searching for four leaf clover and horse riding!!! Those memories I'm sure are what influences my art today.

I thought you might like to look at these old photographs of my family.

Old photographs hold so many precious memories and are one of my favourite things to look at!

My grandparents on my mum's side.

My grandmother feeding my mum.

My parent's wedding.

Baby me with my mum.

Me in my retro flower bedroom!

Getting ready for sweet dreams!

I always loved horses.

Enjoying the sunshine!
