About the Artist
I am a professional British artist and currently live in Leipzig, Germany.
I have exhibited regularly in Germany and
I grew up on the Wirral Peninsula in the North West of England.
The sea and all things nautical are the main influences in my oil
As a young child I was inspired to be an artist by my
great uncle who was a commercial artist.
He worked for the Eagle comic
and also produced chocolate box scenes for Barker and Dobson
In 1982 I gained an Honours Degree in Fine Art.
After training I worked from my own studio in Chester and had many exhibitions at that time in the North West of England.
I met my future husband in London in my late twenties and my art career took second place to other responsibilities.
Since 2005 I have been able to return full time to my painting.
My paintings are held in public and private collections
across Europe and North America.
Some of my work has also been
published by Ecosse Fine Art and by Woodmansterne, the major card
