Born into an arty family, I was a rebellious punk teenager in 1970's London.
At college, I studied Arts and Crafts experimenting with various mediums.
I trained in floristry and designed weekly hotel floral displays and wedding bouquets.
I started silk painting with Tony Wigg at Garden Suburb Institute and currently attend Hampstead School of Art.
I also work for IPSEA, helping parents of children with SEND access education.
I have lived in Finchley with my husband and 2 sons for 20 years.
I use acid steam set dyes with the Serti Gutta resist technique, alcohol and water.
I love the way the colour dye explodes on the silk in abstract flow, creating organic beautiful shapes.
My work is mainly figurative inspired by the body in motion, using the flow of the paint to capture movement and dramatic light effects.
I add embellishments and hang the paintings on a wooden bar so they wave in the airflow in keeping with silk paintings early eastern origins.
