About the Artist
“The main thread of my professional background has largely been that of Educator – in some form or other. I have experienced teaching a vast range of abilities and variety of ages. My guiding principle has been to empower people to more fully realise their potential and their creative abilities. My aim is to motivate and inspire students to have confidence in themselves and explore thoughts, feelings and ideas through creative expression.
I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t painting drawing or creating. The almost magical alchemy of colour and silk makes Silk Painting and Batik exciting media to work in. I produce Art work for the home, work or meditation space, as well as silk items to wear, and cards for all occasions.
I am a member of The Guild of Silk Painters, The Batik Guild and The Essex Silk Painters”.
