I grew up in Lechlade, and spent many years of my adult life living in West London, I loved the hustle and bustle of London life, but missed the countryside. I moved back to the West Country in the early 90s’, with my Husband and two sons, Jonathan and Christopher.
My artistic flare began to emerge as a teenager when I would sculptor wood. Later I swopped wood for massive rolls and sheets of paper which developed into abstracts with textured wax rubbings finished with coloured ink. There became large gaps with my visual arts as life took over the things I really wanted to do, but every now and then I would get a box of paints for birthday and Christmas presents which would automatically start me off again.
I have eventually settled into abstract painting mainly with acrylics, but I will be doing many mixed media in the future. Luckily there are no gaps in my artwork these days and I always have a painting in progress.
