Contempory landscapes in acrylics and mixed media

I started my creative life as a Graphic Designer but I have drawn and painted for as long as I can remember. I attended The Berkshire College of Art and Design and managed to work as a graphic designer for many years before having my two children. My graphics background has definitely influenced my use of composition and colour, although now, I very rarely pre-plan my work as I prefer to paint spontaneously from my imagination allowing the picture to develop as I go. I do occasionally work from photos but I do tend to get over-involved in making it look like the photo rather than adding personality and style.

I work mainly on canvas but I have more recently started to work on paper as well. I also love to work on wood and slate. My mainly influence definitely comes from the English landscape as I was born and brought up on a farm so nature is something that I love and my paintings explore the ever-changing seasons. My favourite season to paint is winter as I love seeing the structure of the trees that are hidden during the other seasons. My winter scenes are also my best sellers with many of my originals selling before they are even finished.

In my mixed media pieces I use everything from texture paste and glues to stitching and beads and in my acrylic paintings, I love to explore mark making techniques.

More recently I have discovered Alkyd oils (a faster drying version of oil paint). They blend so beautifully and the colours are so vibrant. I will gradually be releasing prints of these as the originals tend to sell even before they are finished.

My shop contains mainly prints of my paintings but I do also list smaller originals. I also occasionally like to create more unusual products like my Kiln Bottle lighthouses and Glass Bottle art. I also have been getting my images digitally printed onto coasters and cushions and this is an exciting area for me as the possibilities are endless. I have also had my images licensed for cards and prints.

I sell my work exclusively on-line but my licensed products are available both online and in shops and galleries across the country.

Thank you so much for reading my story. x

GDPR PRIVACY POLICY
This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

Information I Collect
To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorised Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order for example), if you contact me directly.
I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
• as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
• when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
• if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
• as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
• Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
• Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as Printing and delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
• Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 5 years.

• Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
• Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
• Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
• Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
