My creative roots come from a background of textiles and fine art; my knowledge and expertise comes from working in education; my passion comes from my love of painting. It is through the merging of these three elements that I have arrived at where I am today, able to express my creativity confidently and freely as an experienced artist and designer.
I am an artist, designer and educator. I studied Fine Art/Textiles at Goldsmith’s University, London.
An opportunity to move overseas took me to South Africa, the Middle East and Egypt, where I then started on a path as an International Art Educator and artist. I have been teaching Art in American International Schools for the past 20 years. As an experienced art educator I have enjoyed sharing my passion for art with students from all over the world, and inspired many to follow their own artistic path.
“I love the physical action of painting. The connection with the canvas. My work is a joyous celebration of life through a fearless use of vibrant colours combined with patterns and textures. Layers of broken imagery are partially revealed, partially hidden, like a story unfolding, drawing the viewer into an image that becomes understandable and recognisable.”
