PORTRAIT ARTIST AND LANDSCAPE PAINTER.
EXHIBITION ON DISPLAY – ‘NEW BEGINNINGS’ IN THE BEEHIVE GALLERY : 10th – 21st JULY 2023
PRINTS IN ALL SIZES AVAILABLE TO ORDER. COMMISSIONS UNDERTAKEN.
I began a teaching career in 1975 with a qualification in Integrated Creative Arts. I taught some wonderful children in Southall for several years but knew I wanted something more for myself. I became a professional actress in 1979 setting up my own company to work in schools as a means of using Drama and Theatre as an educational tool.
A chance remark, whilst on holiday in Italy, resulted in my husband presenting me with all the tools needed to begin drawing. I enrolled on an Art Class on our return, and I have been painting ever since.
On what would have been my retirement age from teaching, I decided that the time was right to advertise myself as a professional artist.I love painting portraits! The biggest challenge of which is to find a likeness! Since the pandemic, I have responded to requests to produce more local images and, together with the portraits, my portfolio includes Wellington and its surrounds, Exmoor and Devon and parts of Italy.
Please come along to have a look at the new exhibition in The Beehive’s Gallery.
On display from 10th July – 21st July 2023.
