About the artist
Original pen, ink and watercolour paintings based mainly on botanical themes. Some originals are adapted for unique cushions, trinket boxes and cards.
I began my career as a self-taught artist with bespoke commissions to paint portraits of peoples' houses, painting more than 100 homes, churches and other buildings in watercolours over a 10 year period. This helped me develop my style of detailed pen and ink drawing with watercolour.
My artistic background led to me become chief administrator and a major contributor in the founding of Sculpture at Goodwood, working closely with sculptors, foundries and curators in the commissioning and installation of significant new works of British sculpture. I worked at Goodwood until 2002.
I continue to work with pen and watercolour creating renderings of classic children’s illustrations, and also began drawing and painting botanical designs which I have adapted to create beautiful and unique cushions, mugs and trinket boxes.
I now live with my husband Bill and golden retriever Monty in Felpham, where I continue to be inspired to paint by the natural beauty of the area.
