Biography

I'm a nurse, working in the NHS for 23 years. I developed a chronic pain condition and had to have some time off work whilst it was investigated/brought under control. I found this time off really hard. So I turned to Art and fell in love with painting. I began by painting animals on stone for my nephew to hide in the local walks for others to find and began to get request's from people who saw my rocks. I moved to painting on recycled slate, to give me a larger canvas whilst combining my love of natural materials and recycling.
I have always found animals make the best muses too! I am still a nurse, but painting in my spare time keeps me going on the high pain days and I hope bring smiles to others too!

inspiration

Animals - who have been a lifelong love for me! Natural materials having many childhood holidays in Wales and Cornwall growing up and have always loved the look and feel of slate and recycling. Turning old, dis-guarded slate into something beautiful and lasting.

medium

I find each unique piece of slate dictates to me the animal best suited to it. I love taking my inspiration from the slate.
