I studied history of art at University and fell in love with colour and representation in portraiture. I specialised in fin de siecle and Art Nouveau jewellery which led me into a career in antique jewellery and gemmology.
After having children and moving out of London, I turned my lifelong passion for drawing into a career - and though I have been drawing and painting professionally for a number of years, each and every portrait teaches me something new. My subject range is wide but I still find it crucial to capture the spirit of what I am portraying
I enjoy using pencil and pastel as its varying tones of delicacy and drama allow meticulous detail to achieve powerful portraits. I particularly love the intensity and brightness of the eyes to let the soul of my subject shine out of the page.
