Born into an arty crafty family, an Art and Design degree was followed by family life while keeping my creative interests alive through hobbies. As retirement approached, time for myself and a home in France introduced me to the joys of watercolour.
Following a move from Leamington to Dunchurch, as I now settle into a more rural way of life, the countryside around me and the changing seasons are a constant source of inspiration and much-needed balm for the soul. In our new home, I am doubly fortunate, as for the first time, I have a dedicated studio space, where I have begun to offer workshops and courses, as well as inviting visitors to view the small gallery.
At the moment, I still mostly work in watercolour, but am beginning to experiment with other media. I first discovered watercolour while we were living part time in France. A weekly class where the teacher was 'trés sympatique' and a great admirer of the english watercolourists - she led us through exploratory exercises and encouraged me to experiment. I have always loved the slightly random effects that happen with watercolour, so I can happily play around with colours and water for hours on end.
