I was born in Nottingham and moved to Invergowrie at the age of fourteen. I have always loved creating, achieved my Queens Guide and was awarded art prizes at school
Having considered many options, I was keen to study and earn so chose a career in Nursing. I spent a few years in Aviemore as an Assistant Warden at Loch Morlich Youth Hostel and studied Biotechnology at the University of Abertay.
When my son began school in 2002 I studied Fine Art and Fine Art Development at Dundee College.
I continue to develop paintings in my studio at home. I enjoy this challenge.
I paint with watercolour and joined the staff at Forgan Arts Centre to teach ' Wonders of Watercolour ' in 2014.
I taught art classes at Dundee Art Society for four years, am a selected member of Paisley Art Institute, a member of ART 309 ( a group of artists I met at Dundee College ) and member of SKETCHBOOK (we meet to sketch weekly at Dundee Botanic Gardens ).
This year I have enjoyed sharing my ' Inspired in Japan ' presentation with various Art Societies and was delighted to have work selected for the ' Artists of the Year 2018 ' exhibition at The Mall Galleries in London.
I am feeling honoured to have work selected for the International Group in ' Fabriano in Acquarello 2018 ' with the painting exhibited in Fabriano, Italy,
More recently I thoroughly enjoyed a fortnight painting and meeting visitors during my Solo Show at Dundee Botanic Gardens.
