A fun introduction!
I’m a lifelong artist who loves what I do, and I am passionate about showing others how to paint!
Originally from Manchester, I have lived all over the UK, Connecticut in the USA and now Maine et Loire in France, exhibiting wherever I go. I love the fact that art can be found the world over and learning from other artists I meet on my travels is so inspiring. In 2014 I was honoured to win the ‘domesticated animal’ category of the Association of Animal Artists annual exhibition and in 2023 I was awarded Highly Commended by The Artist magazine for my self portrait, I am immensely proud of these accolades.
As well as my lifelong passion for art I also have a background in the corporate world as a qualified accountant. This has given me a deep understanding of the wellbeing properties that art can bring to people in professional careers.
