Drawing and painting have been part of my life since childhood. I studied Art & Design degree at St John's York and gained a BA Hons Collegiate in 1981. I worked for a short time for Tootals Manchester in their flat pattern studio but as the textile industry imploded I retrained as a nurse , which I thoroughly enjoyed and worked for 16yrs in the NHS. In 2003 I had the opportunity to share a studio space and was fortunate to meet Ron Laitak a fellow artist who introduced me to Phil Harding at Vernon Mill and I began to follow my own artistic vision, later sharing a studio with Jan Cartain. In 2010 I moved to the 4th floor and my own space, Bay 1 unit 5, 4th floor, Mersey St, Vernon Mill, Stockport. In February 2014 I moved from Vernon Mill to my home studio. 

The  recent exhibition at The Portico Library & Gallery had the theme of Splendid Isolation where inspiration was taken from a solitary object in a landscape or places where one can find solitude. I have worked in oil on canvas watercolour, pen and pastels. The abstract work is based on opposing colour theory using the 3 primary colours and 3 opposing secondary colours to create harmony.
