A little bit of background

I was born in Liverpool and now live and work in Chester. I have always loved to paint and create things, so naturally studied an Arts foundation in Liverpool and then Fashion marketing BA Hons at North East London, graduating in 1988. I stayed in London working in fashion buying and eventually moved back to the North West where family life took over. It is only with the help and support from my family that I have been fortunate enough to return to painting. I am currently enjoying using water-colour and oils. I find the unpredictability of the end result exiting and challenging. British wildlife is a constant source of inspiration along with the more unusual animals who are in residence at Chester Zoo.
