I'm a self taught artist who began her career in interior design. After being widowed rather prematurely at the age of 24, I made the decision after an eight year profession in interiors to make a major change in my life, and that came first in the form of a one year sabbatical in Australia, where I painted a couple of murals whilst in Sydney in order to keep myself employed. On returning home I was prepared to take on any commissioned work in exchange for a living, which ended up being hugely varied, but it provided a stead stream of income to keep me afloat. I have worked in many mediums since then, some I favour more than others, but I am not a typical art college graduate with a set and branded style with which I trade myself. I do what I love and feel passionate about what I do, and having found that life almost became not worth living, my art has given me a reason to get up in the morning and a raison d'être that is never short of satisfaction and pleasure. In short I paint to live and I live to paint.
