I have always picked
up a pencil, crayons or felt-tips, since I was a youngster. Hours were spent
scribbling on scrap paper or in colouring books. I grew up in Croydon
Surrey. The only daughter in a family of four older brothers. There was so much to
do; Parks to explore, interesting people of varied cultures to meet. I lived in the midst of colour. People wore their native outfits. The smells were often overwhelming. Music rang out from
every street corner. I was always watching, studying and enjoying the world around me. I loved to gaze at the fur of the neighbourhood animals and often
would draw my pet Sindy, while she was curled up in a chair; her coat was a
beautiful tan and black.
I am now a wife and the mother of two grown ups. I live in Lincolnshire. With more time to admire my surroundings I have started to
draw again. This time it is not colour that I use but black and white. The
world I see in detail I want to capture; I see its detail in black and white.
My pictures have
sold internationally . I have undertaken many commissions for both wildlife,
pets and people portraits.
