Born in Hong Kong I spent the first nine years of my life there before moving with my parents to Scotland. After school and university, I married and moved to Kent, England, to teach for a couple of years before starting our family.
Due to my husband's job, we have had the privilege to live in several wonderful places throughout the world. When we moved to the San Francisco area of California, USA, in 1985, I studied calligraphy, graphic design and stained glass and produced artwork for the Carden School of Moraga.
These wonderful years in California were followed by a move to Paris in 1988 where I worked on the production of the British School of Paris Review. Between 1992 and 2014, we moved in and out of Kent three times, New York City for only a year and Hong Kong three times!
My many moves throughout the years have been rich in memorable experiences which I now want to share with others through my artwork. One of my favourite destinations when out and about in Hong Kong was to visit a Chinese temple, see and smell incense coils burning, watch as smoke curls up to the roof and then come home and capture this experience in a painting.
I am now living back in the UK and have an extensive library of photographs to inspire me to create more artwork to keep me busy for many years.
