After graduating in Fine Art in 1984 at the University of Reading I pursued a career in music and performing arts education, completing an MEd in Creative Arts at the University of Exeter. Visual, auditory and kinaesthetic communication and expression have defined me as an artist, a teacher and a person throughout my life. I feel that a sense of ‘theatre’ or drama in my work originates from my days as a young dancer and pianist and later on as a performing arts teacher and choral singer. After retiring from my last post as music teacher in an International School I have been able to devote all my energies to my own art.

Over the years my work has been exhibited, commissioned and bought by collectors in the UK and USA and has been featured in “House and Garden”. I participate in Surrey Artists' Open Studios, exhibit in local group exhibitions, am a member of Ginger Cactus Art and exhibition organiser of Leatherhead Art Club.
