I was born in 1963
After leaving North London Collegiate School for Girls in 1982 I studied Fine Art, History of Art and Education at Homerton College, Cambridge qualifying with a B.Ed Degree in 1986.
I then taught A Level Art and Design at Kingston Grammar School for 4 years. I stopped teaching to concentrate on my own work and had my first solo exhibition at the Ozten Zeki Gallery, Walton Street, Chelsea in 1992 and a second exhibition in 1993 at the Marryat Gallery, Richmond, Surrey.
During the last few years I have really started to enjoy ‘paint’, the experience of colours, making a harmonised palette and learning how to place them in a free and exciting way. Studying artists such as Ivon Hitchens, Cezanne and Keith Vaughan has helped this. Rather than painting the landscape as it is, using the paint is a way of expressing a personal response to it.
My oil-based paintings are inspired by the beautiful surroundings of my Wiltshire home and the stunning seascapes of the North Cornish coast. I also paint vibrant still life and flowers. I am currently showing regularly around the country.
Since 2014 I have shown regularly with:
Josie Eastwood Fine Art in Hampshire,
Cricket Fine Art in London,
McAllister Thomas Fine Art in Godalming, Surrey
Claremont Gallery in Sevenoaks,
Rosvik Goup in Hampshire,
Quiddity Fine Art in Hampshire,
Affordable Art Fair in London,
and more recently been introduced to:
Jerram Gallery in Sherborne, Dorset; and
British Art Portfolio, all over the UK
