Interests and Personality

BiographyBorn 1960, in Cambridgeshire I gained a BA Hons in Fine Art Printmaking in 1981 from West Surrey College of Art and Design. I have since worked on commissions from all over the world and have exhibited countrywide. I have my own range of greeting cards and take workshops with children which has lead to the designing of art projects for festivals and shops.
InterestsMy work is concerned with Flowers growing naturally and the inter-relationship of plant forms in nature. Poppies, Lilies, Clematis, Anemones and Peonies figure predominately in my work, along with the close-up aspect and fine detail found in nature. The vibrant colours of flowers have always fascinated me and I find that Watercolour is the perfect medium to capture their qualities.
MusicStevie WOnder Santana Gabriel Texas Maroon 5 Fall out Boy My Chemical Romance
HeroesCharles Rennie Mackintosh Elizabeth Blackadder Paul Hogarth Graham Clark My husband Stuart who is my best friend and my son Danny who I love so much and am so proud of. People who can be themselves whatever life throws at them.

Thanks for your eyes, Susie. I am not sure what is 'new' here on your site, but, I come here for eye candy always. Glad y'all are well, keep in touch eh? love, SMae

SallyMae

Heloo Susie, Hope you and yours are healthy/happy and assume your brushes are wet and making more beauty. New painting, 'camellia in silver bowl' up in new trouble gallery. Probably a bit more tweaking to be done but, need to STEP AWAY before I resort to gesso or sharpen fire ax on jugular. This one was very far from my ability but have learned A LOT and think it is a keeper.

SallyMae

Hello AGAIN! I just posted my hand hewn Mardi Gras costume in 'Sugar Snap Mardi Gras' gallery. Now, putting thread, needles and glue gun down and back to wet brushes! Hope y'all are well! Hope Spring comes your way soon! Been a very rugged winter for you, methinks.

SallyMae

glad all are well. yes yes time in a spinning vortex. The Muse has me sewing a 6 piece ensemble inspired by Nellie Bly who went around the world in the 1890's in ONE outfit. Planning on a west coast tour during hurricane season this year. I also have a 10 yr old protege...we paint on Sundays and he is astoundingly GOOD. Will be painting more once I finish with all this silk...it doesn't have any paint on it YET. Glad you, your son, and Stuart are well.

SallyMae

Seems like MAP has slowed down a bit. Hope you and Stuart are well and fine.
