About me

I’ve spent most of my adult life as an artist disguised as a senior manager and Chief Executive in the charity sector, as well as a mother to three sons.

I’ve finally taken the step of leaving full time employment to be an artist who also undertakes a range of consultancy work. You can find out about that work on my business site.

The artist in me started off wanting to be a textile designer, and you will notice that much of my work is textured and uses colour in a way that could become a piece of fabric. Like many other artists, I have had to learn to undo many years of conventional teaching, and also had to learn that some of that teaching had its own validity.

I paint because I need to. That need comes from a love of the creative process and the insights and gifts that the process of creating can bring. My inspiration comes from life events, feelings and emotions, ideas, and sometimes people and places and objects.

Much of my work is abstract and reflects the vibrant colours and energy of Latin America where I have lived and returned for visits several times.

My work tries to evoke the essence of the subjects – emotions, energy and feelings rather than a straight reproduction.

I have worked mainly with acrylic on paper and card, and sometimes with gouache but I am now branching out into acrylic and oil on canvas.

I have attended many courses and workshops and continue to do so, believing that the process of doing art needs as much support and reflection as any other form of practice. This is especially important to me given how many years I did not allow the artist in me to fully emerge.

For the past couple of years I have attended a studio based class with Michael Major which has given me a real boost of energy, confidence, and skill, and enabled me to discover the potential that painting in oils offers.
