Many moons ago, at the age of about nine, I won a prize in an Enid Blyton art competition, for my drawing of a pet shop (drawn in coloured ballpoint pens!) and was thrilled to receive a letter from Enid herself, who was my favourite author at the time. Inspired by this, I was constantly drawing and painting throughout my childhood, and gradually progressed from painting by numbers sets to proper oil painting. Unfortunately, after gaining art O and A levels, life got in the way and my art was put on the back burner.
After several years of working for myself as a virtual assistant I finally took the plunge in 2007 and decided that the time was right to refocus on my first love of art. I soon discovered coloured pencils and found myself using them more and more, although I also work in other media. Since then I have exhibited locally and further afield and am now a Silver signature member of the UK Coloured Pencil Society, and have won several awards, including Best in Show at the UKCPS Open Internation Exhibition in 2013.
I run coloured pencil workshops and give demonstrations to local art societies and I am also available for private tuition. Please contact me for details if interested.
