After I studied at the Central St Martin’s School of Art in London, I ran away and joined the Circus. I’m not sure if I was running away or running towards the bright lights and shiny costumes, but for the next 35 years I was a happy acrobat, performing all over the globe.
I married my Lion and Tiger trainer, Alan, 14 years ago on Oahu. I have been painting seriously now for 7 years, 6 of which professionally. My work is exhibited in Wy’s Gallery on Oahu’s North shore and in the Quayside Gallery and at the Artel Gallery in Pensacola. I was the featured artist at the Gulf Breeze Art Festival in 2019. I won the ‘Purchase Award’ at the Artel Gallery in Pensacola, the Cinco Banderas Collection 2020, and the Award of Merit at the Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation in 2021. I am also lucky enough to be included for two years running In the Greater Gulf Arts Festival in Pensacola. I was “Best in Show” at the ADSO Fort Walton Beach February/March show and am thrilled to have my work at Sea Glass Beach Cottage and Navarre’s Turtle’sNest.
I am now working on Floridian ocean views and animals. I am most definitely a “Colorist”.
