I am a mixed media artist and printmaker working in my garden studio since I left nursing seven years ago. I’ve always had a passion for art and so thankful to be able to spend all my days surrounded by paints, collage, inks and tools of the trade! I have a big smile on my face just walking to my studio in the mornings!
My paintings and print work are inspired by Port Isaac, in Cornwall, travels, architecture, my pets, objects as well as anything with bright colours. Since lockdown, I have discovered my love of still life and still working on new paintings in this theme.
I love to use patterned paper in my paintings as well as newsprints, stencilling, oil pastels, and anything else I can get hold of.
I am a member of Buckinghamshire Art Society, The Visual Arts Group and Beechwood Artists. I take part each summer in Bucks Art Weeks (sadly it was a virtual exhibition this year due to Covid-19) and so excited to be taking part in this new venture of Amersham Art Unlocked where visitors can come and safely visit our studios and browse/buy our artwork.
I have exhibited at the Mall Galleries as part of the Society of Women’s exhibition and also the ING Discerning Eye exhibition. I’ve also had the pleasure of exhibiting in St. Ives, Cornwall and Bath as part of the Arts festival. I also enjoy taking part in local art exhibitions throughout Buckinghamshire.
