Born in the north west of England, she realised that she had a passion for art at an early age. As with many people, 'life's got in the way of studying art as a career, but a love of art was never far away. Years later, her passion for art was rekindled following the loss of a loved one. She finds herself naturally drawn to all things old or seemingly abandoned. She initially started with acrylics, but soon began to explore other mediums and now paints with oils as well and has started to experiment with watercolour and enjoys using charcoal. Every creation is a learning process.
