At first, I did this for self enjoyment but as friends and family started to make requests, I soon realised I had the potential to earn a living doing what I loved. In 2013, I was asked to paint a local landmark for a 70th birthday gift. I painted the iconic Liverpool waterfront and the compliments were overwhelming. This was a pivotal turning point as I embraced this new genre of painting buildings and iconic landmarks.Landmarks became my passion and it was whilst sharing my work on my facebook site that I was contacted by a Liverpool expat living in Toronto called Cheryl. Cheryl loved my work, especially the paintings of her beloved home town of Liverpool. She went on to order a large 100x50cm print which she proudly displays in her Toronto home as a special memento of home. Cheryl encouraged me to advertise to expats across the globe and thus the aptly entitled Mementos of Home business was born! I am passionate about my business and I'm proud that my paintings can add a little piece of nostalgia into a person's home!I primarily works with acrylic paints applied to various sized canvases. The addition of flowers to all my paintings is proving so popular that I now supply my gift range to the National Museums and Galleries in Liverpool. My base is a little studio at home in Cheshire where I live with my husband, 3 children, a cat and a mini lop rabbit called Louis!Thanks for taking the time to read about me and I hope you love my work!
