ABOUT

I have always been a keen artist, and practised art in my spare time between career and family - creating has been a way of life feeding my soul in a busy schedule.  I completed 2 years at college doing Fine Art in Staffordshire giving me a great foundation to apply to my art and creativity. 

I took superannuation from the NHS which a

allowed me precious time to develop my art.

I feel my happiest with collage, mixed media and abstract pieces; colour, harmony, shapes and line are where I am drawn.  I like to sketch, particularly with concertina sketchbooks, which gives me freedom and inspiration for art pieces and compositions. I like to Journal, book bind and slow stitch which allows me to explore textiles, paper and upcyle many items, which is bliss.  I love to share skills and creativity outlets so would love you to sign up to my Newsletter where we can have a creative connection.
I have exhibited at Matlock Artists Society over the last 3 years, Bonsall Art Club for the last 2 years and at the Old Lock up Gallery in Cromford for the Secret Postcard Exhibition. I also have a sketchbook in the Brooklyn Art Library in New York.

I am pleased to announce that my artwork 'Wave' has been accepted for the Harley Open Exhibition 2020; the Exhibition runs from the 1st August-1st November
