My love of landscapes began when our children were small. We took them on holidays to places where they could experience open countryside, free of the restrictions of living in a town. I had a love of open spaces and began to draw and paint some of these places back then.
Later, we lived in a beautiful part of North Wales where the foothills of mountains nursed valleys with farms in green surroundings. Although often challenging, these beautiful landscapes stimulate feelings about house and home and the love of the land. Some of my paintings are also of Ireland, where the colours and clarity of the sky are so clear.
