Painting has been my passion since childhood but until recent years I never really had the time to indulge it. Originally a watercolourist, I now mainly paint in acrylic which for me is the most versatile of all the mediums. I also paint in oils and pastels.
I live in Chester, Cheshire, one of the most beautiful and historic cities in the UK and with the wonderful scenery of North Wales just over the border, there is a wealth of subject matter for my work. Of all my paintings, scenes of Chester tend to be the most popular and so I have had prints and cards made from the originals which can be purchased at very reasonable prices. Most of my work is done from photos; I find the light and shadows stay in one place that way! I am also available for commissions. You can also see some of my paintings in local exhibitions which are held annually, some biannually, details of which can be found on the Home page. I also use Facebook as a way of getting my work 'out there'!
I hope you enjoy browsing the galleries and if you wish to purchase any of my paintings, feel free to contact me. A limited number of prints and cards are available for direct purchase with more paintings available in these formats over the coming months.
I have recently taken up teaching painting with acrylics, using palette knife as well as brushes and other materials, to achieve a loose, impressionistic style with depth and texture. For details please contact Monique on 07901 683316, or email directly.
