I live with my husband in Murcia, Spain, where I enjoy the long summers visiting idyllic locations along the long rugged coastline and empty mountainous interiors. I travel in winter to various locations such as, California, Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia and Bali.
I originally trained in Photography and Television in London but soon moved to the Orkney Islands in Scotland and later North Yorkshire in England. I have lived in Spain since 2007. Painting is one of my passions in life and I have been influenced by the Spanish artists, Picasso and Miro; the American Mark Rothko and of course David Hockney. In my pictures I try to communicate my love of colour, landscape and plants. I am constantly exploring how to communicate these themes in the medium of painting.
