Watercolour & Ink Painting
Madresfield Court

Having moved from the city centre of Worcester, I am very lucky to both live and work in the beautiful Georgian town of Pershore. I have a home-based studio and split by time between there and The Gallery and framing business I run with my husband, Chris, located at 51 High Street, Pershore.

I use watercolour in a bold expressive form injecting colour into the architecture I capture, painting only the subject matter and referencing the landscape in mono ink line work.

I have just concluded my fourth solo exhibition entitled ‘Our Architectural Gems’ at Spetchley Park where I released my latest collect of work of incredible buildings in the architecturally blessed county of Worcestershire. This followed my successful seconded solo exhibition at The National Trust at Croome Court, celebrating the 125th anniversary of the trust.

As a professional artist I regularly create and add to new collections of work, such as, Worcestershire, Shropshire, Cheltenham, National Trust, West Midlands, Malvern, Birmingham, Seasonal and International. I also keep extremely busy with private commission work, be it clients homes, places of special interest or businesses wanting artwork for marketing and branding.

Three of my works were also selected for the much acclaimed ‘Art Book Series’ for their latest publication on the City of Birmingham, which was extremely well received and worth a read as the artistic heritage of Birmingham is quite outstanding.

As a volunteer on the Pershore Plum Festival Committee, I annually produce a number of new artworks specifically designed to celebrate the local horticultural heritage, plums and the yellow egg plum from which the Pershore festival gains its name. These works are now growing into a unique and collectible body of work.

As an Art Gallery owner located on the High Street, I’ve been fortunate to be asked to be the volunteer representative of Retail and Commerce for the newly formed Pershore Place Board, which is tasked with assisting the town and county councils in the improvement and evolution of Pershore as a visitor destination and economic center for the growing population.

My home studio houses my original works, which will be available throughout open studios, in addition to these, my husband and I will create a large outside weatherproof exhibition and sales space, with wheelchair access, guest seating, plenty of covered areas, all in a beautiful atmosphere within our secluded garden.

We have disable parking (by prior appointment), guest toilet facilities and may be the offer of a glass of wine or coffee.
