I have been active in the market place for several years now, and now have a reputation as one of the top selling artists in the UK, providing work for Harrods and John Lewis, as well as for galleries abroad – from the USA to New Zealand. I also provide paintings for TV programs and advertisements.

Born in Birmingham in 1948, my painting career started at a late stage. In 1982 I took a course in watercolour painting and the seed was set.

Soon I was selling paintings in local galleries, interior design studios, even restaurants. In 1992 I was elected member of Birmingham Watercolour Society and the Birmingham Art Circle.

I became an Associate Member of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists in 1994. Ater attending a foundation course in art at Bourneville College of Art in 2000, I was elected a full member of Society of Women Artists in 2001.

My paintings have many influences, but it comes down to an intense curiosity towards nature, producing strong images, by exploring the many facets of watercolour.

I regularly visit Wales and Italy for ideas for new work. I like the variations in light and changes in landscapes and colours to produce the moods in my works.
