I first discovered a love for art in my teens at secondary school. I took A Level art, but after my exams I promptly returned to my first love, which was music.
As a classically trained harpist, pianist and percussionist, my musical journey shifted my focus away from the pure joy of ‘play’, and into the realms of technique, perfection, and performance. My studies were intense, but a career in the classical world was not to be.
For the past twenty years or more, I have been a traveling musician; performing with some incredible artists all over the world.
I still perform, and have been a proud member of Rod Stewart’s band for the past eight years.
Early in 2021, I felt a gentle urge to pick up paper and pencil, and begin to draw. This urge grew stronger, and my pads began to fill with colour, shape and energy. I quickly evolved as an artist – it became more about a need to do these paintings for me, not just a joy.
My creativity, which I attribute to the growing awareness of Source energy in my life, continues to expand as I explore this aspect of myself.
When I am painting, I seem to disappear to another dimension. I lose my sense of self, but at the same time, connect with an essence that is pure, present and blissful.
I am drawn to roses because they fascinate me.
What I love about them is the perfect balance of masculine and feminine energies; they have a quiet yet powerful strength – supported by resilient stems, protected by thorns, whilst also being so delicate, dewy and unapologetically, innocently voluptuous.
When I began painting them, I didn’t know that they have the highest vibration of any plant in this three dimensional world we call home.
I imbue my pieces with love. As I paint, I deliberately work as a channel for Divine Love, Light and Energy.
My passion as an artist is to create pieces which simultaneously delight and soothe. Pieces which radiate the force of love and creativity which binds the Universe together.
With love always,
