About me

Introduction I started my professional life as a Home Economics teacher in a Nottinghamshire comprehensive school. The family moved to Bristol where I worked again in the Home Economics and Needlework Department in a city school. The changes to the national curriculum pushed me towards more creative Textile work and I finally found myself teaching Art up to A Level standard. I am a self taught artist,whose developing love of my garden and the flowers I grew, led me to spend much time painting florals, This has remained my first love, although I do occasinally produce landscapes and other still life work. Most of my work is in watercolours or acrylics, I paint regularly with Avon Vally Artists, a group of painters based in Saltford between Bristol and Bath. I am part of a team of three which organises the group. I have been fortunate to hold successful exhibitions in Bath and in the Cotswolds and I am also fortunate to have an annual exhibition in Wells Cathedral. I have a daughter, Elaine, and still live in South Bristol
