I fell in love with painting as a teenager living by the sea in Cornwall UK where I studied art to foundation level. I then took a different path studying sociology and going on to work in social policy. 

 

I didn’t make art for a long time but felt the lack of it. It was when I had my first daughter that I realised I really needed the energy that making art gives me and I started to draw in my spare moments. I took various classes and eventually developed a regular painting practice. 

 

Working with mixed media on paper I switch between representational and more intuitive painting, playing with colour, organic forms and geometric shapes.
