I’ve been painting for 6 years now. During lockdown, I’ve been busy with commissions but also painting live on Facebook every Wednesday at 11am in the hope of providing some company to people at home. I then put the videos onto YouTube. Here are some of the paintings I have done over the past few months:

 

 

When the country went into lockdown, I felt isolated and thought, I can’t be the only one! So I decided to start painting live on my Facebook page every Wednesday at 11am. I think it’s been a success, it’s not that I have a lot of views live but loads watch later. I try to be creative and think of various things to paint, florals, landscape, seascapes, symbolic etc. I work from my studio in the garden.

 

I was born in Great Yarmouth, lived in Norway during my teen years then back to Yarmouth. There I met and married my hubby and we moved to Peterborough with our two young sons. Now they’ve left home, we moved to Sutton Bridge. I started painting as an escape from the day job! A high school cover supervisor! I’m totally self taught from watching YouTube. I started selling 6 or 7 years ago and have never lost the feeling of utter amazement that someone actually likes my paintings enough to pay for them!
