I have always had a keen interest in creating artwork. This first started as a child when I would sketch and make artwork from fabrics and threads. I then progressed to designing and making my own clothes. Being in full time work left very little time to pursue my love of creating art and I became a "Leisure" artist.

I get great pleasure from creating art based on all different types of subject matter but I specifically enjoy painting animals, people and nature. I now work in oils, acrylics, pastels, pencils, inks, fabric paints, printing and felting wool.

Retford is a lovely area to live in and I am very fortunate to have met many other like minded people through various local art groups. This has helped me to develop my skills, provide me with inspiration and motivation and given me the confidence to exhibit my artwork. I look forward to continuing to learn and improve my skills.
