Gainsborough, Lincolnshire

I'm an artist living in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire with my husband Darrell.
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, watercolours & mixed media; 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.
My studio has recently been extended and converted into a gallery & studio which has a permanent exhibition open by appointment.

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.
