'I live in Nottinghamshire and am married with a grown-up daughter, Alice.
I trained as an occupational therapist and then went on to work in NHS hospitals, but always painted in my spare time. However, while my daughter was still young I decided to give up my job in the NHS so I could concentrate on looking after her - this also gave me much more time to devote to painting.
Much of the inspiration for my art-work comes during my daily walks with Eric, the little lurcher, who also makes an appearance in some of my designs!
I am passionate about wildlife and the countryside and I try to include elements of this in as many of my designs as possible.
I have been an active member of my village’s Environment Group since it formed over 20 years ago and during that time have helped plant hundreds of trees, wildflower and hedge plants and cleared countless bags of litter. I also help with a local Toad Patrol.
I also enjoy gardening, pottery, quilting and anything creative!
