I first became interested in Art when I was a primary school teacher. I very much enjoyed being instrumental in developing the children's skills and sharing their enthusiasm and creativity.

Colour is a great stimulus when teaching art to children and this has continued into my own work. I particularly like using colour and pattern when interpreting aspects of nature. I work in acrylic, pastels and oils.

My work has been exhibited in Southampton City Art Gallery, King John's House, Romsey and Stockbridge Town Hall.
