I haven’t got many memories of my childhood where my artistic passion isn’t part of them. Wherever I travelled or visited I would insist that my sketchbook and pencils enjoyed the journey with me. Having the ability to become lost in a cosmos of creativity enabled me to see the world as a magical place.
After studying art at A-Level along with Business and Finance I was unsure where to take my art and so I went to work in administration.
I married and had two children. Once my children were born I decided to paint murals in their bedrooms. I started taking commissions for murals. During this time I was asked to paint a set of canvases for a baby’s nursery. And it was then that I fell in love with oil paints and I realised how precious it was to bring an image to life on canvas; this was when I concluded my doubt of not being sure where I wanted to take my art. I dabbled at painting landscapes and flowers which I loved. I enjoy creating abstracts and love taking commissions. I find each commission to be a different experience. I’m certainly kept on my toes!
I now happily sell my originals in various galleries and gift shops in Derbyshire and the UK, as well as greeting cards and fine art prints.
