About me
Having attended art school sraight after leaving school, I happily worked wherever the jobs took me, painting projects and assisting. I finally settled down to easel painting in my kitchen, with the occasional decorative interior or fashion project between art shows. When I married and had children in , I adapted to my new routines and helped run my husband's business while continuing to show and work on commissions. After many great part-time administration jobs, tutoring, freelance projects and commissions while raising my three beautiful daughters, I returned to study, to up date my practice. First, I attended Kensington & Chelsea College of Art. I then joined the Graduate Diploma course at the Royal College of Art and graduated on to the one-year Painting MA at Camberwell UAL. Finally I graduated from Goldsmiths University with an MA in Arts & Learning from their education department. Now my time is my own again; I am hunting out and working on the projects, part-time jobs and shows I want to do. I love collaboration - problem-solving with an artistic twist and bounce, contact me if you want to play.
