Art and illustrations for your happy home
I am an semi abstract painter and illustrator working from my garden studio in rural Lincolnshire.
My love of art and creativity began at an early age winning many art competitions before completing a foundation course at Lincoln Art College followed by an Honours Degree in Textiles from Manchester Met University.
My style captures the emotion and atmosphere of nature - the sea, the sky, stormy clouds and wild landscapes feature in my work. A lifetime love of colour and texture, I mainly work in acrylic but often use mixed media to enhance the artwork.
After my degree I embarked on a varied artistic career from colour mixing mixing in a textile studio to running my own successful online card and print company
In 2020 when the pandemic hit, I had to make some big changes in my life and I rekindled my love of painting.
My work recently featured in The Artist magazine and I was a semi finalist in The Artist lounge competition 50 Shades of Red run by The Kinghouse Gallery.
Following my dream
After running Giddy Kipper with my husband for 15 years, we decided we needed a change of direction! Giddy Kipper lives on in greeting cards for large online card companies and shops but we closed our shop on notonthehighstreet in 2020 when the pandemic hit and our local printer closed.
Steve went on to pastures new in interiors and I followed my lifelong dream of becoming an artist full time.
I love painting seascapes and landscapes, sometimes illustrative, sometimes more abstract concentrating on the colours and mood of the artwork.
I sell my originals via social media (and a new website coming soon!) and am currently in talks with a Cornish gallery to sell my work through their beautiful shops but this online shop gives me the opportunity to sell more affordable prints of my artwork
I currently live with my wonderfully supportive husband, two lovely sons, 4 rabbits and a cat called Betty
