I'm an artist living in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire with my husband Darrell, 2 step daughters Mackenzie and Maddison and our very soft Jack Russell, Murphy.
Originally from Liverpool, I studied Fashion and Textiles at Manchester and my P.G.C.E in Art and Design was in Liverpool.
I have been Head of Art in Preparatory schools in Surrey and Nottinghamshire.
After 23 years of teaching Art & Design I took the brave step of leaving my profession to work full time as an artist and run workshops from my Art studio in Gainsborough.
I work in acrylic paints and am influenced by life, people, nature, my environment .....the list is long. However, I love to paint flowers, butterflies and landscapes.
My colours are vibrant and I paint both realistically and abstractly. I love the work of Georgia O'Keefe, Gustav Klimt, Monet, Antony Gormley and Michael Kaws.
I have painted many commissions and work with the client to achieve what they want.
I have had numerous exhibitions in Surrey, Liverpool, Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire.
