Creating Happiness, One Painting at a Time

After a long and busy career in teaching and life-coaching I have retired and can once again spend time doing what I most love - living a creative life.

I love to play in my studio, with paint and paper and glues and glitter. I love making pretty, whimsical girls and butterflies and flowers. I love textiles and beads and often create bracelets and sun-catchers and cushion covers and ..... well, anything that takes my fancy really. Sometimes I just take photographs and turn them into cards.

My mixed media paintings always have a message, a quote, a thought , or a mantra on them. They are most often created for a particular person and sometimes only limited edition prints are available in my Etsy shop. I do try to have cards and postcards available of the most popular works.

My personal motto is 'Live Contentedly' I seek to find quiet joy in all I do, I try to live in the moment and keep the negative voice at bay. I look for the good in the world and I laugh loud and long every day.

I create all my paintings with love and happiness. I hope you will enjoy them too.

Shop policies

Last updated on December 31, 2013
My shop sells my original mixed media art, plus prints, postcards and cards made from the original piece.

My work usually includes an uplifting sentiment or quote to enrich the life of the owner and viewer. [I believe in positivity and beauty as great healing agents for the entire world]. I often create a piece for a specific person and so the original doesn't always appear in the shop.

I want my supporters and purchasers to be happy and warmly invite you to ask questions where ever I have not been clear enough.

I have sent several original paintings and prints oversea now and all have arrived safely - which is heartening for all of us I think :-) I pack very well to ensure your art arrives undamaged. Please do read the shipping policies carefully however as there is an optional insurance charge.

Thank you for coming by, thank you for favoriting my shop and thank you for your interest in my work. I am always delighted to hear you like something, even if you don't buy it :-)
