As a child I painted and doodled and as my mother said and continues to say “I was always creating somewhere”!
I found school challenging, always difficult to sit still, sometimes finding it hard to understand why people never saw things the way I did!!!
I originally trained as a window dresser, I enjoyed many years working around the country, creating wonderful visual spaces.
Restless by nature, I travelled the world and fuelled my passion for all things exciting and intriguing. Experiencing different cultures and places.
Eventually settling down, having a beautiful daughter and two naughty dogs!!!! Life was good……
But life throws you curve balls ……..
Having battled with breast cancer the death of my sister had a huge impact on my work and life choices, and as a result I stopped painting for a number of years!!!!
Life took another turn!…….
So with divorce under my belt my desire to be free and find myself again, creativity hit me like a tidal wave.
With many artists their work is them-that is so true in my work, a sense of humour, a vivid imagination combined with a kaleidoscope of colour.
My work has changed somewhat with maturity, I am able to give each painting more time rather than rushing to the finish!!!
Not always commercially viable! I paint what I see and what I love to paint.
Excepting who you are has only just found me!!!!
One thing I am sure of is with my work is ……. Love or hate it you can’t ignore it!!!!!!
