Born in Bristol in 1938 I moved to Stourbridge in the West Midlands in 1980 when I remarried. I now live in Stratford upon Avon. I am a widow with two children and four grandchildren.

My early desire to be an artist came to fruition late. Careers in librarianship, teaching, writing and counselling and psychotherapy – which I still practice –  just got in the way!.

In 2001 I decided that the need to create visually had to be fulfilled so I enrolled on a Foundation Studies course at Bournville Centre for the Visual Arts in Birmingham.

From there I was fired up and ready for the challenges of a Fine Arts Degree at Wolverhampton University (2005-2011) which offered me further stimulus, art theory and studio practice.

The rest is history and is on this web site…..
