Named 'Best 100 Artists Worldwide' By The World Art Foundation, California.
Welcome to my Zippi store!
I am passionate about painting . Originally from the UK I have travelled the world in recent years, studying Art and painting the culture and beauty that captures and inspires me .
I have lived in England, Switzerland, the Middle East and Curated Art Exhibitions to Royalty.
This gives me a unique eye for the colour and life of places that people love to call 'home'. Our homeland is our treasure and is part of who we are, it writes our story from our histories and experiences.
I am driven to capture the true sparkle, the emotion, the iridescence that surrounds us, that lifts our spirits and souls......
When I paint it takes me to another world - a world of silence, a special place so within myself that I can't be found by others. I adore the mysterious magic of painting. Where words are silenced and there is nothing but the flow of another ocean inside of me. Within this play I bend the rules. I change the usual landscapes and sounds - into my own reflections. The deeper I go the more perilous the journey and the longer it takes to return.
Sometimes I fear I cannot find my way back. But the adventure is too great to deny. And each foray returns me with a new gift, of something I've never seen before, something to treasure. It is my world of learning.
