I grew up in Hampshire and now live in West Sussex with my husband. I have three grown-up children. I enjoy working with a limited palette and am inspired by skies, weather and the extremes of light and dark. My aim is to draw people into the painting whether it’s through colour or physical pathways. Isolation is a key theme of her paintings, it’s about evoking the emotional connections one feels to the landscape.
