I grew up in the Tamar Valley and I have always loved the Devon countryside and particularly Dartmoor. My Dad was a Dartmoor guide so we went on many exciting walk as children and now I find that Dartmoor is a constant inspiration to me. I have always painted its wild and unique qualities trying to capture its special atmosphere and colours. Recently I took up felting as I was drawn to the strength in the colours of the dyes. I have used my paintings as a foundation for my felting pictures finding this medium to be very rewarding.
I Studied Art and Design at Plymouth and Nottingham and I taught Art and Photography.
