My early working life and training as a textile and ceramic print designer have given me a love of colour and pattern as well as drawing and painting skills.
Inspired by observations and impressions of specific
places experienced, I try to convey my interest in the natural environment and particularly in birds, in my paintings. In this way my paintings are often attempting to tell a story or record a moment in time. We have
been lucky to have lived and worked in several wild and beautiful places around the UK including the Highlands of Scotland, Gloucestershire, Mid Wales and the Norfolk fens. My husband is a bird ecologist. I am now based
in the East Neuk of Fife, near St Andrews.
