I started oil painting after bringing up four children as a single Mum. I also own a successful design company and was previously the editor of a local art and music community magazine ‘Art and Soul’. It is only recently however, that I have the opportunity to produce art and create myself. I come from a family of professional painters and thus understand that I will always have much to learn. I enjoy working with oils because they seem to have so much life in them and more readily express what I am trying to portray. The subject and style of my artwork varies, but the main themes are currently escapism (ie landscapes) and specific areas of focus (ie music/wild animals/dance). However, I also want to create artwork that encourages social conscience.
