"The quiet beauty of Dunwich Forest and Dunwich Heath in Suffolk never fails to inspire me, whatever the season or weather."
Born and educated in London, first at Harrow School of Art and later at Winchester School of Art graduating in 1975 with BAHons in Woven Textiles. Lived and worked in Malaysia as a teacher and designer from 1975 – 1983. From 1985 – 2009 full time teaching of Fine Art at Merchant Taylors’ School, Northwood in UK. Private studies with London based painter Oliver Bevan from 1991 – 1998. Joined Indigo Arts in 1991 leading to a succession of group exhibitions in and around London and St Ives. Regular courses at the St Ives School of Painting from 1992 – 2007.
Retired to Suffolk in 2009 to spend time developing her work, heavily inspired by the landscape - the expansive beauty of the skies, fields and woodland around the Blyth Valley and all along the coast near Dunwich. Marks and textures dominate in her work in an explorative approach to painting and printmaking - always aiming to express imaginatively the dynamic but quiet majesty of the Suffolk landscape.
Since 2009 exhibits regularly in annual group shows at:
The Cut Arts Centre, Halesworth
The Halesworth Gallery, Halesworth
The Harry Becker Society, Wenhaston and Blythborough
Represented by Frivoli Gallery, London
Works are in private collections in the UK, France, Malaysia, Japan, USA and Australia.
