The 2 weeks I had painting in Italy and recently this October were wonderful. I loved sitting in olive groves with my watercolours. Stunning colours, wild chicory, my favourite flower, and teeming with wild life.
Already looking forward to next year!
I have some new commissions which are really enjoyable to do. Do make contact if you have an idea of something you’d like painted or just want to talk over potential paintings. There will be no pressure!!

I am very excited as my studio/gallery is included on route 2 as a place to visit in the new ‘Slow Wight travel guide’! #slowwighttravelguide.
It has been researched and written by Mark Rowe, news editor of Countryfile Magazine and produced by Visit Isle of Wight.
The guide is available via a website https://slowwighttravelguide.co.uk/ and uses Google maps to plot the routes.
The Slow Travel Guide to the Isle of Wight is a collection of eight sustainable travel routes around the Isle of Wight that can be explored by a combination of bus, walking and bicycle. The routes act as an invitation to visit the Island’s ‘headline acts’, but also to explore many of its lesser-known, yet equally delightful spots. The routes feature food and drink, farm shops, artists and craftspeople as well as places of interest – including some ‘secret’ rural gems.
The emphasis is on exploring the Isle of Wight and really getting a feel for Island life, and the guide offers practical travel information on how to explore the Island without a car. Walking, cycling or taking the bus (or train) around the Island enables visitors to slow down and take their time.
