I was born in Nottingham and moved to Invergowrie at the age of fourteen. I have always loved creating, achieved my Queens Guide and was awarded art prizes at school

Having considered many options, I was keen to study and earn so chose a career in Nursing. I spent a few years in Aviemore as an Assistant Warden and studied Biotechnology at the University of Abertay.

When my son began school in 2002 I studied Fine Art and Fine Art Development in Dundee.

I continue to develop paintings in my studio at home. I enjoy this challenge.

I paint with watercolour.

I have been a Tutor of Art for over ten years, joining the staff at Forgan Arts Centre to teach ' Wonders of Watercolour ' in 2014 and also enjoy visiting other Art Societies to carry out Workshops and Presentations.

I am a selected artist member of Paisley Art Institute, a member of ART 309 and the SKETCHBOOK group

I am pleased to have had work selected for ' Artists of the Year ' exhibitions at The Mall Galleries in London and hung with the Royal Society of Scottish Painters in Watercolour in The Royal Scottish Academy Building this year. Recent work has been selected for International and National Online Exhibitions including the Society of Women Artists Annual Open Exhibition and Mini Watercolour, Kyiv.
