A fun introduction!
I’m a lifelong artist who loves what I do, and I am passionate about showing others how to paint!
Originally from Manchester, I have lived all over the UK, Connecticut in the USA and now Maine et Loire in France, exhibiting wherever I go.
I love the fact that art can be found the world over and learning from other artists I meet on my travels is so inspiring.
In 2014 I was honoured to win the ‘domesticated animal’ category of the Association of Animal Artists annual exhibition and in 2023 I was not only awarded Highly Commended by The Artist magazine but also Runner-up International Artist of the Year 2023 for my self portrait, I am immensely proud!
As well as my lifelong passion for art I also have a background in the corporate world as a qualified accountant. This has given me a deep understanding of the wellbeing properties that art can bring to people in professional careers.
