I am happy to say that I am a Leicestershire based artist working from my studio in Foxton, near Market Harborough.
I trained at Loughborough and Bristol Colleges of Art where I went on to do a degree in Fashion and Textiles. I worked for many years in the fashion industry in London and East Asia before settling back in Leicestershire.
I have always had painting in my head and seen life through the eyes of a painter, disturbing me when I’m sleeping and distracting me when I’m driving!
In August 2 0 1 1, at the age of 48, I decided it was time to be honest with myself and set myself a target to catch up for the lost painting years. It was no good ‘coming out’ as a painter if I didn’t have any paintings! I decided I needed 50 paintings by the time I was 50. This website displays those paintings.
I paint every day, starting at 7.30am, to accommodate everything else that needs to be done in a busy family life.
I now exhibit widely, have my own gallery, sell on-line here at my website and also at Georgiana May and Saatchi Online. Thanks to my first London Art Fair at the Chelsea Town Hall, I have some of my original paintings in Russian family homes in Chelsea.
It has been the best decision I ever made!
