I am drawn to the quiet moments in life. The soft mist of a morning sunrise. The splendour and vastness of the skies through all the changing seasons. And the velvety petals of an open garden flower.
Flowers with their colour, fragility and joyfulness embody so many different facets that I wish to explore and express in my work. I find I need different ways of working in different media in order to portray the many aspects of nature.
I was born in Edinburgh and now live in Yorkshire. After obtaining a degree in Fine Art I studied art psychotherapy at Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh and for many years I worked for the NHS and privately as a therapist. I am now retired and enjoy having more time to paint.
