  • I am a professional Artist and qualified Art teacher/ tutor with over 23 years experience. I run full day workshop 'experiences' from my studio in Gainsborough. I run workshops on Drawing in Mixed Media, Glass Painting, Silk Painting, Watercolours, Pr

    I'm an artist living in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire with my husband Darrell, 2 step daughters Mackenzie and Maddison and our very soft Jack Russell, Murphy. 

    Originally from Liverpool, I studied Fashion and Textiles at Manchester and my P.G.C.E in Art and Design was in Liverpool.

    I have been Head of Art in Preparatory schools in Surrey and Nottinghamshire. 

    After 23 years of teaching Art & Design I took the brave step of leaving my profession to work full time as an artist and run workshops from my Art studio in Gainsborough.

    I work in acrylic paints and am influenced by life, people, nature, my environment .....the list is long. However, I love to paint flowers, butterflies and landscapes.

    My colours are vibrant and I paint both realistically and abstractly. I love the work of Georgia O'Keefe, Gustav Klimt, Monet, Antony Gormley and Michael Kaws.

    I have painted many commissions and work with the client to achieve what they want.

    I have had numerous exhibitions in Surrey, Liverpool, Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire.
