About The Artist

I have recently re-married and moved to Walton-on-Thames Surrey but have lived mainly in East Sussex and London. Born in Edinburgh I returned to the University to Study Art and Architecture from 1975-79. In 1980-81, I gained a Diploma in Decorative Arts Studies at Manchester University.

Before going to Edinburgh I attended Life drawing classes aged 18 at Brighton Art College taken by an exceptional teacher called Norma. It was here that my passion for life drawing was kindled.

Norma told me to "dedicate my life to art". Well, this was not to be as I needed then to gain confidence and experience in the rich pageant that is life. Now, with my lovely husband Peter and young daughter Firle I am ready to make more of a statement.

At University I attended the art college in Edinburgh and have also joined many art classes in Chelsea, Putney and Manchester. I have even organised my own in various homes along the way. In the 1990's I spent a wonderful 3 years drawing with the artist Peter Collins in his studio in Chelsea and providing the models too.

I have exhibited with the Putney Artists (1994/1996) Chelsea Artists (1996), in the Edith Grove Gallery in SW10 (1996) and sold privately too. At present some work of mine is on show at 15 Harley Street London.

To date I have largely painted with gouache and drawn with conte, charcoal, ink and pencil. I am about to try oils so watch this space.

Anyone interested in commissions or seeing my work please contact me on 0785 908 6468 or 01932 220 536
