About me

I am a self-taught artist. I've always been interested in people and art, and so have brought the two together in my paintings.

And I have written poetry since I was seven years old, so thought I would use this site to combine the paintings and the poems.

Sometimes a poem I've written is an attempt to describe the feeling behind one of my paintings. Often the words come first.

I am married to Dave and have a son, Reuben; until recently I worked for Young Dementia UK; and I play jazz (rhythm guitar and vocals) in FiddleBop.

Thanks to Dave for putting this website together for me. x
