I live in Oxshott,Surrey with my husband and have three daughters. I run two studios here in London,one in Oxshott and one in Wimbledon Art Studios,Riverside Yard, Wimbledon. I love to travel and have another studio in the USA. I spent several years studying with realists from the USA and have developed an individual painting style that focuses on the human figure and portraits. I work in oils, pastels and red chalk.
I work mainly from life with the portraits as this is the only way to to understand my subjects character.
