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
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.
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.

commissions or seeing my work please contact me
