About Me

How I paint

I have been using Reiki energy for the past 18 years to treat my clients, and to be able to embed this Universal Energy and love within a painting is a sheer joy. Each piece is unique and very special. There are no prints. Before I begin painting, there is a process - I like to prepare my space and surround myself with elements from the four directions – Earth, Air, Fire, and Water .

I choose crystals, light a candle, and always use energised filtered water when I am working. Sometimes I like to use specific sounds, especially while focusing on a Chakra or vibration, and I work with an amethyst palm stone in my left hand, and a large quartz point near my water and paint pallet.

My work is ever evolving

My work is ever evolving.
I’m not one to sketch my ideas as I tend to gather inspiration from the many photographs I take during my walks, and the colours I have in my Somerset garden. Sometimes I paint with a specific colour in mind, or I’m inspired by an event, vibration or emotion.

I love using handmade cotton rag paper from a water mill on Exmoor, although larger pieces are on canvas, or block board. More recent pieces are more textured with the addition of crystals. It’s all about the energy!

Artist in residence

I can sometimes be found at The Langford Hotel near Fivehead, where you can see me painting some of my larger work. A selection of pieces can also be seen in the main hall, and a couple of the bedrooms within the main house.

Viewings here are by appointment and weekday times can vary depending on my client commitments. I also have a selection of work here at my studio at Wayside House in Curry Rivel. Please contact me if you wish to view.
