Title or Location: Llandudno in September
I visited Llandudno for the first time. It was a special trip with my cousin. We had fought a long battle for recognition of past injustice. We won and we celebrated by visiting beautiful Llandudno and made some beautiful memories.

Title or Location: Silvanus , God of Wild Nature.
Quite the beginner, I'm drawn to the magical aspects of nature. Semi abstract, wet on wet watercolour is my favourite , which allows me to paint wild nature, but put my own magical slant on it! This piece was inspired by a tutorial by Joanne Boon Thomas.

Title or Location: 'Once Upon a Midnight Dreary '.
The piece was inspired (as was the title) by my love of Edgar Allen Poe's Poetry . It's from his poem The Raven. I'm very much a beginner and love experimenting with semi abstract watercolours. I painted it on a stormy , wet and menacing Manchester afternoon, my room littered with candles and my Guinea pigs sleeping soundly! I followed a tutorial by Anastasia Milly, whose work I admire and I felt was the perfect level of dramatic, magical and mysterious, befitting my mood at the time. A huge

Title or Location: River and Trees
When I make these watercolor paintings, I'm aware that cameras and AI can make the art much faster than me. So I make these paintings using techniques that optimize the strengths of this medium.Exaggerated color palettes and wild brush strokes give the viewer a stronger sense of the communication happening between my mind, eyes, and hand as I make art. It's very low tech and personal. There are faster ways to make art, but none that express me better.

Title or Location: Penarth Pier Sunset
Chasing the sunset. I'm an artist and mother with a great love of running. Since becoming a mother in 2021, my free time has dwindled into near non-existence. So, when I do get out for a run, I always want to make the most of it. With little time to train, my exercise had been condensed into early mornings and evenings around my boy's sleep times. Despite the less favourable timing this has brought with it the glorious benefit of gorgeous winter sunrises and sunsets across the water.Alon

Title or Location: Cookie Monster?s Excellent Snow Day
This is a painting of my oldest son, Mike, when he was 2 - enjoying the snow in his favorite Cookie Monster snowsuit. Mike passed away 13 years ago at the age of 29 from complications caused by a congenital heart defect, so this was a special labor of love!
