A few words about me...
At art college I found my forte. In those days, unlike now, drawing from observation was seen as the cornerstone of art eduction. I specialised in painting; the course I followed specialised in the creation of large scale canvases for specific locations - the largest i remember being 16ft long. I graduated with distinction, and the nature of the training i received, and its focus on drawing, has enabled me at different times in my career to work in different fields of art.
I have worked at the extremes of scale. For instance, as illustrator and designer for Crummles Enamels the work was small and detailed. Over the years I also worked for two other giftware companies and a decorated tile manufacturer. I have produced book-cover illustrations and over many years created artwork for an advertising agency.
However, my real strength lay in
figure and portraiture and i have subsequently focused much of my energies on this. I have exhibited at many events showing on the spot demonstrations. Conveying the individuality in every face
has always been a fascination, in this way producing portraits for countless satisfied customers.
Although my work was largely centered round the south of England, i have sold drawings to customers in many parts of the world. When i had the opportunity of visiting Australia, i drew at lots of lovely locations where my portraits were met with the same appreciation. I now live with my husband in Poole, Dorset, UK and teach drawing one morning a week.
