Taught art and design at The Broxbourne School and Haileybury College in Hertfordshire till 1997, then painted full time. Brought up a family of three children, and now her granddaughter.

Moved to Cornwall in 2002. Painter of semi abstract landscape and still lives, with energetic, but sensitive use of colour and form. Drawing is usually the starting point, but the paintings are developed intuitively. Attended painting classes with renowned art teacher Robin Child.
