Artist Biography:

In the late 1980’s, I moved from Yorkshire to Canterbury in Kent to complete a combined degree in Primary Teaching and Fine Arts. I never returned to Yorkshire, deciding to stay and teach in Kent. I have long had a love of being on a beach next to the sea, and capturing beautiful sunsets and seascapes. Living near the sea on the East Kent Coast and with a west facing uninterrupted view of an apple orchard, has continued to fuel this obsession. it was after my daughter was born that I suffered from severe depression and it was during this time that I I rekindled my love of Art- producing pastel drawings ( a medium I had previously only used in Life Drawing) using images of sunsets from magazines.
I have continued to teach in Primary schools, but retrained as a SENCO (Special Education Needs Coordinator) which brought with it new challenges and frustrations. Alongside this, I have suffered a number of bouts of ill health and surgery, and art has been my therapy throughout this.
I primarily work in pastels with ink detail, and as you can see from my work, I continue to use both sea and sky as my inspiration.
