I am an artist living with my family in the Tyne Valley, Northumberland, UK.  I have always loved to paint, draw and be creative.  For over 20 years I have taught in primary schools and one of the highlights was teaching children how to be artists.  Now I have decided to follow this career path more fully, taking inspiration from the world around me.  Northumberland, Cumbria and Dumfries and Galloway feature a lot in my work.  The River Tyne is my favourite haunt and I love to see how the landscape, flora and fauna change with the seasons.  I paint with watercolours mostly and I hope to share some of my watercolour techniques through online tutorials and workshops, as I believe everyone can learn to paint.  See My Guide to Watercolour pages for more information.  My other interests include walking, birding, singing in an acapella group and cooking.
