I think art is in my DNA growing up with an art teacher mother and an architect father. As children my older sister and I spent hours in art rooms and architect studios, experimenting with the various media we found, paints, pencils, marker pens; creativity was an everyday part of our life.
I studied at Epsom School of Art & Design and from there trained as Graphic Designer/Typographer in an advertising agency in the west end of London.
I worked in this very dynamic industry for 13 years, taking a career break to start my family, freelancing where possible as my daughters grew up.
Over the past few years drawing and painting
has become part of my life. I work from my own studio in the heart of Pewsey Vale. I paint predominantly in acrylic and love to experiment with other mixed media also.
I have endless inspiration from my surroundings and walking here regularly allows me to immerse myself in the landscape & nature, photographing and sketching ideas that ultimately become final pieces of artwork.
My love of colour, light, shade, texture, contours of the land and reflections on water feature throughout and I think the joy I get creating such pieces shines through in my paintings.
