I am an Artist working mostly in portraiture and imaginative painting
I studied Art in Coventry and Birmingham and have been based in Northern Ireland for over 25 years.
I have spent many years co-ordinating and facilitating arts projects and classes within healthcare and/or community settings and I have a particular interest in the field of mental health. I believe strongly that participation in the arts can alleviate stress and improve mood.
My own painting began in portraiture with some illustration and has steered a path through the more imaginative often inspired by a prayer, thought or song and has recently included a move back into portraiture. I enjoy colour and the sense of connecting quietly with something deeper as I paint.
