Welcome to my space!
Creation has always been a part of my life. It is my soul's voice. I have no more logical way to describe it as it takes me on journeys that require no words to beautiful realisations and wonderful insights. Over the past ten years my work has gone through many phases but I always come back to drawing with a pencil! It is the thing that lets me find the quiet place with no words that the next story flows from.
My most recent story began with a request to draw a paper plane in space and ended up with images about memory, connection, Freud and of course the purpose of living. There are also lots of inner goddess images about moving through those ideas. It paralleled moving homes and beginning in a new community. Art does that: journal life in the moment.
I started painting about 8 years ago with no prior knowledge or experience. My interest developed after trying to help my disabled daughter, Kimberley. She has now retired but I found I like to paint.
My style is still developing and I have experimented with all mediums. Currently I like to paint wildlife in a realistic style, however this concept can be demanding and requires a lot of research into the anatomy of the particular animal being painted and concentration to get the right composition, structure and colours.
I am a potter & clay artist enjoying all facets of clay work. I have a small studio 1km north of Montville Village.
I welcome visitors by appointment to my studio or on my weekend open days. I love answering questions about how my pieces have been made.
Recently I have been making bespoke dinner sets for some of my clients which is a new avenue for me. Would you like something made especially for you?

I love texture, colour and the endless possibilities of art…..
I have been painting, drawing, creating for as long as I can remember and love to pass along the knowledge that I have gained. The process of creating is being able to connect with something greater than yourself, feeling comfortable in taking risks and seeing where your muse takes you. Art classes are a wonderful way of extending your creative pathways. After leaving school I studied commercial art, this has proved invaluable for my own teaching purposes. All of us have an inner artist and it’s learning how to connect to that inner artist that allows you to feel free to take risks and believe in yourself.
