I was born in Romsey and I have lived there all my life. I've loved drawing and painting since childhood. A change of job in 2007 allowed me to take it up again. I am largely self taught and I've had valued help from various workshops with the East Devon Art Academy and adult art group attached to Romsey school. I love colour and light and enjoy trying my hand in different mediums. Currently I'm particularly enjoying using acrylics and experimenting with collage. I am a member of Artseen. I have exhibited widely in Hampshire and Wiltshire.
