I decided to start painting in 2001, after many years of designing and making clothes, and 12 years as an aromatherapist .
I had always longed to paint but was too busy bringing up children and gardening, doing pottery, designing and making clothes and jewellery.
I chose to find my own way rather than go to classes, and began by painting flowers from our garden near London. Slowly I found a way to express the essence, vitality and beauty of nature, attempting to bring a sense of harmony and joy,
sometimes painting brightly and colourfully, and other times in pale soft colours, using acrylic paint on canvas.
I have sold many paintings privately in England and abroad and have exhibited at-
Compton Casey Gallery, Gloucestershire
Apple Gallery, Godalming, Surrey
Vivartis Show, Wormley, Surrey (four consecutive years)
KD Gallery, London
Saatchi Gallery, London
Guildford Cathedral- Solo Exhibition
Michelham Priory, East Sussex
Houghton Lodge, Hampshire
