I studied ceramics and sculpture at Leeds College of Art and taught at various schools in Lincolnshire whilst working with my husband David in our ceramics studio workshop.
Eventually, my interest in ceramics was overtaken by a longstanding desire to paint, which I have now been doing full time since my retirement from teaching.
My work has changed over the years from the strictly representational to a more personal approach. I have also explored collage and digital painting alongside my work in acrylics.
Some of my paintings…
I have exhibited widely in this country and with the American Water Colour Society in New York. I was awarded the Graham Prize at the Holmfirth Art Exhibition in 1991, the Nicholson & Co. Prize with the Lincolnshire Artists’ Society in 1996 and the Lincoln Hospitals Purchase Prize with the same Society in 1998.
In 1999, with the American Water Colour Society, I was awarded the Walser S, Greathouse Medal and was included in the travelling show
I was a co-founder of the Louth Art Exhibition in 1991.
I shall be exhibiting my work in May 2019 in the Garden Gallery at Gunby Hall, Lincolnshire.
Also…I shall be exhibiting my work in June 2019 in the Riverhead Gallery at the Louth Riverhead Theatre.
