I am very lucky that my exhibitions have always been very successful and I love to meet and talk with the people about my work.
Over the last 2 years I have had two large one women exhibitions, one duo exhibition and exhibited in several local exhibitions as Art on the hill, Brill; Longwich Art show; at the MS Centre Halton, Aylesbury; Islip art show as well as Bucks Art Weeks Kingsey nr. Thame and Oxfordshire Art week at the OYAP centre in Bicester. Sadly of course several of these exhibitions have been cancelled this year, but I am hoping that
ART IN THE PARKS IN LEAMINGTON SPA will be able to continue AUGUST 1ST/2ND PLEASE COME AND FIND MY EXHIBITION SPACE
Originally I trained as a picture restorer, and although I earned myself a fine art degree, mainly in printing, after this, it was not until my family grew up that I felt able to return to my art.

I love walking the landscape, never knowing where the inspiration will come from or knowing where a piece of work is going to take me, but feel I know when I have arrived! My work is to be about that moment out there and my reaction to it. During this time in lock down, I have found myself experimenting more in different techniques and mediums, using watercolour and inks as well as using brighter colour, but for me my work always references the landscape
I am always happy to take on commissions, and love to put my take on a specific areas
