Born in Cuffley, Hertfordshire in 1950.
I have mainly worked in the care sector in hospitals, residential homes and daycare. The last 20 years of my working life were spent in a specialist centre for elderly people with Alzheimers Disease where a large part of my job was to run art sessions and other therapeutic activities
Whilst working full time, thanks to flexible hours, I completed a BTEC in Professional Development, Fine Art, specialising in printmaking at Kensington and Chelsea College, 2002.
Since retirement in 2011 I have run art sessions at my local Alzheimer's Society daycentre as a volunteer (currently closed due to Covid 19).
I am based in West London where I brought up my daughter. I have exhibited prints and paintings in many group shows, had a few solo exhibitions and taken part in open studio events.
