I have enjoyed working with fabric since school, but have only painted since I moved to Lee-on-the-Solent in 2003.
Decades of working as a Chartered Accountant, Homeopath and then a Paramedic left little time for either sewing or painting, but I still enjoyed entering the occasional art exhibition beginning with the Titchfield Art and Craft Show in 2009.
Initially, I painted only in watercolours and was delighted that one of my early paintings was ‘Highly Commended’ by the judges at the Titchfield Art & Craft Show in 2011. I continued to paint only occasionally until ceasing full-time employment in 2016 and thereafter, have been able to devote more time to both painting and sewing and have now begun to paint in watercolours, oils and acrylics. Recently, I have made numerous items for local craft fayres and had my first solo exhibition as part of Hampshire Open Studios in 2018. It was a successful experiment for me and I am exhibiting again in 2019.
I am a keen traveller who loves animals, the natural world and being by the sea, subjects which often feature in my creative work.
I am a long-standing member of the Solent Art Society and also attend regular oil and watercolour classes with Sue Rubira.
