I like to paint and draw my immediate environment, both outside and inside. I love the soft light which filters through the beech trees up in the Chilterns where I live.
I use a variety of materials, mainly acrylic and oil paint, pencil, charcoal, and pen and ink.
I studied Fine Art in Nottingham. Graphics and illustration in Brighton for one year under the inspiring children’s book illustrator, Raymond Briggs. After a varied career teaching in colleges, secondary, and primary schools, I also worked in design and marketing. I am now able to spend more time enjoying making my own art.
