Born into an artistic family I was always encouraged to paint & draw. So it was a natural progression to study art and design at Chelsea School of Art . Following my dreams I then trained as an illustrator & Colour Retoucher at a London Studio working full time for several years.
After marriage & children I wanted to expand and express myself artistically so enrolled in evening classes for life drawing & all media painting. Subsequently I then started work as a free lance artist gaining many commissions in Portraiture through an agent /Photographer in Chislehurst.
I continue to paint just about anything that inspires me now . Art is a never ending learning experience, challenging, exciting and often rewarding.
Many of my paintings have been collected in several countries including here in the UK , U.S A, New Zealand France, Spain and Italy. Whilst living in Spain I had two Exhibitions at 'Buckwell Visual Arts Gallery ' where I sold several landscape & seascapes of the Costa Blanca region.
I now paint from my studio in Hampshire as a retired professional. I still take on commissions for portraiture & animal studies of your favorite pets. A visit to the Studio can be made by appointment where you get the chance to see some of my current work.
