I attended Coventry and Liverpool College of Art and graduated in textile design. I then worked as a textile designer in London and Barcelona and subsequently as a textile artist/embroider in Scotland, where I have lived for 30 years. In recent years I have taken up painting and work mostly in oils. My inspiration is varied but reflects my interests - in gardening and the outdoors. My paintings are of flowers and landscapes – particularly the landscape around my home in Killearn. My work has been exhibited with the GSWA, local galleries and at the RSA Open 2013 and 2015.
