I fell in love with watercolours while I was working as a professional illustrator. It’s the spontaneity and fluidity of watercolour that I really enjoy.
Up until recently it has always remained a pastime, taking my inspiration from the beautiful Warwickshire countryside where I live. This all changed when Alfie, our beloved Cockapoo, joined the family and I discovered a new source of inspiration!
As with all animals he has his own unique personality, and that’s what I wanted to try and capture in watercolour. Soon, the pastime turned into a profession when my friends and family began asking me to paint portraits of their pets.
Before long a business was born and I’m delighted to say that I now create portraits for pet-owners all round the world and have featured in many publications.
