Dorset is a county in the UK of great beauty. Its landscape and rural lifestyle offers real inspiration for aspiring artists. I write stories and paint, two methods of escape from the daily domestic routine that shapes my life as a Mother of three. I worked for years but feel this is a new phase in my life, one which I want to explore further, not just as an escape but as an alternative reality.

School Run - A view I love and see every single day of term
This is the view of the school run, a view that looks out from the old airfield at Tarrant Rawston across to Ashley Heath, a golf course. It was this view that convinced me to stay here in the UK and not leave again to be an expat. I enjoy watching the colours and tones change with each season. It is painted in oils and has taken me weeks to paint, adding layer upon layer in order to achieve the effect I wanted.
