Biography

I started my career as a florist enjoying every aspect of colour and design. Later on I became a freelance artist – colourist working for a minting coin company. Working with flowers for many years, art was the natural progression for me capturing the amazing shapes and forms of plants and trees in paintings.

I work purely in watercolour and particularly love the transparency, the sense of light and the freshness of the medium; whenever possible I paint from life. All plants are inspiring and never cease to amaze me with their diverse colour and structure; sadly there is never enough time to capture them all. There have been many commissions and illustrations including flower themed wedding planners.

I am a member of the Society of Women Artists exhibiting annually in the Mall Galleries since 2006 and have won the Princess Michael of Kent watercolour award. I was a member of the Society of Floral painters and now am a Fellow of the Society of Botanical Artists.

I have exhibited widely with the SBA exhibitions in London, Palmengarten and the Tulipa Tulipae exhibition in the Real Jardin Botanico Garden, Madrid. For over 20 years I have enjoyed promoting the arts by teaching flower watercolour classes.
