CELEBRATING THE SOUTH DOWNS February 28 2017
11 years ago I moved from London to East Sussex in the South East of England, with my husband and two young daughters. We were drawn to the gentle drama of the Sussex landscape - the rolling South Downs, the dramatic chalk cliffs and the pretty shingle beaches fringing the English Channel. Each morning before I go to my studio, I enjoy walking and running on the South Downs with Pebble, my Cocker Spaniel. The stunning landscape of my adopted home county is an ongoing source of inspiration for my artwork, and I am constantly discovering new views of the South Downs which I plan to draw and paint in the future.
A selection of my Sussex-inspired paintings including: Seven Sisters, Lewes, Brighton Pier, Brighton Pavilion and Chichester, are available to buy online as signed prints and greeting cards from:
The South Downs National Park is England’s newest National Park (formed in 2011) and in 2016, I was delighted to be invited by the National Trails to create a bespoke gouache painting in celebration of the South Downs Way - the long distance footpath and bridleway which stretches ‘100 wonderful miles, from Winchester to Eastbourne’.
My new South Downs Way painting features the iconic view of Beachy Head in East Sussex, and it will be available to buy online as signed prints and greeting cards in March. If you are interested in this new design, and would like me to contact you when it is available to order, please feel free to email me at:
Lastly, I’m thrilled to say that I have a feature on BBC Countryfile (South Downs episode) on Sunday 5th March. For further details visit:
That’s all for now from the South Downs… until next month!
