My career has been interesting. A mother of two, teacher, lecturer, designer and illustrator, curator, gardener, growing amenity trees for twelve years on a local Estate. I exhibited widely in the United Kingdom and have work in private collections.

In January 1989, I began studying for an MA in Art and Design, but the death of my artist husband in the August, meant a life changing shift. I spent the next few years cataloguing and curating retrospective exhibition 0f his art legacy, before returning to the MA in 1993.

The new millennium saw me making and framing large works on old plaster. I married again, but before long my husband became terminally ill, dying in 2011. Unable, during this time to continue art practice, I concentrated on creative writing, mainly poetry.

Moving permanently to East Yorkshire in 2013, I began to make and show work again. Lockdown has proved a fruitful time. I began showing work on Instagram and joined the Lockdown Still Life group. This year, I joined  the Visual Artists Association, showing work in their Online Spring Exhibition. No longer isolated and with so many opportunities, It  is an especially exciting time to be a visual artist.
