Trained at City and Guilds of London Art College. Decorative Artist and Art Restorer with extensive experience of working to commission and with a large London client base. Most recently a teacher of Water Colour and Gilding
Her paintings combine various approaches and explore colour and effects of light on environments and emotions. She uses the interaction, contrasts and textures of a range of media. More recently she has been painting with water colour. Most of her influences stem from the rich vibrant colours of the Mediterranean landscape and the light and transformation of surfaces. Taking ideas from nature and simplifying them in form while adding others to bring in an element of abstraction.
