Although born in Nottinghamshire most of my professional life has been spent working as a Psychotherapist within the NHS in Tyne and Wear. On leaving the NHS my love of Cornwall and the sea took me to Penzance where my interest in people merges with a passion for painting. Whilst specialising in portraiture and figurative art I also enjoy still-life and seascape.
As a lover of Italy and all things Italian, I studied for a time in Florence, though essentially I am a self-taught Artist. Stylistically, it would probably be accurate to describe my work as representational and figurative.
With a flair for jewellery-making my range uses natural materials such as silver and gorgeous refined stones to create pieces of beauty and sensuality.
