I am a visual artist working mainly with mixed media and acrylics as I explore different themes and topics.
I enjoy finding the rhythms and patterns in life and the connectivity of all elements through nature. I often return to my love of natural objects the minutiae of life; leaves, pebbles, shells, simple objects gathered or seen on a walk.
I was born in Wales and studied art in both Wales and England before starting my teaching career that lasted for more than thirty years and took me to The Bahamas and eventually Canada.
As an art teacher, working with students for many years, seeing their enjoyment of new experiences and challenges, stimulated the same desire for experimentation in my own art practice.
Involvement in the arts has been a constant factor in my life. Balancing the time between a busy career and family commitments has always been a challenge, however retirement is the newest phase in my life and with it comes the opportunity to work as a full time artist, to continue to learn and enjoy.
