Formerly an Occupational Therapist, a spell overseas gave me the chance to reawaken my passion for art. Since 2013 I have cultivated a new career as an artist and teacher of adult beginners in acrylics, oils and some drawing techniques in my weekly classes, one-off workshops and private bookings.
I paint in my box room studio and have evolved my art practice as my skills developed and seasons of life moved on. In 2023, I'm exploring a series visually based on peonies, roses and hydrangeas, but with layers of meaning around self portraiture, peri-menopause symptoms and coping mechanisms - trying to convey these experiences authentically from the inside, out.
I offer painting classes and workshops in Stoke Poges and Chalfont St Peter, which are easily accessible from Slough, Gerrards Cross, Amersham, Beaconsfield and Uxbridge.
