Di is a full time artist based in Poynton, Cheshire and has been painting since she attended a fine art course at Macclesfield College in 2004. She says that this was "definitely one of the best decisions I ever made".

Di's style is abstract with emphasis on colour and texture. She mainly paints landscapes inspired by stunning views from around Cheshire where she lives as well as the beautiful coastal stretches of Wales in mixed media. She experiments with colour combinations, perspectives and textures, hoping to create striking abstract paintings based on the lush and varied landscapes and seascapes she admires.
I rarely start work with a plan or expectations, preferring to surround myself with photographs taken & sketches made, plus a random selection of paints, inks,
& tools, then set off with an extremely open mind.

As a semi abstract landscape painter looking to create something ‘different’, she is greatly inspired by the Cornish artist Kurt Jackson, whose view is ‘if you know how to make a painting, there is no point doing it’. She also admires Grayson Perry, who says ‘Creativity is mistakes, you try, you fail, you try again’.
