I was born in Kenilworth, Warwickshire, completing my art training in Coventry and High Wycombe, majoring in ceramic sculpture.
After completing a Teachers’ training Certificate in Education, I taught Art in London E17. In 1979 I moved with my husband to Kent and took a post as Head of Art in a Canterbury School. I gained a Masters degree whilst teaching, and finally after becoming a Deputy Head and member of the senior management, I retired early in 2000 to concentrate on my own work.

I work from Crows Camp Studio in my garden; which is open to the public during the Canterbury Festival and South East Open studios events.
I have exhibited in Cologne, Vienna and Jersey; but mainly in local Kent galleries and other exhibition venues.

My philosophy is that of an holistic experience where Art can enrich the whole of our lives and transcend other boundaries. With 30 years experience of teaching and stimulating creativity in others I hope this is evident in all that I produce.
My work illustrates a passion for experimentation within a variety of media. I explore expressive methods of exploiting often rich, colourful and subtle nuances of form, light, shadow, colour and texture.
I will frequently combine intensely personal abstract colour work using luminescent pigments and patination within oil and inks on canvas, paper, and silk, fibres, wood and metal.
