I was born in 1954 and grew up in Notting Hill in London. I now live in Suffolk and Chiswick. I worked as a Speech and Language Therapist for thirty years before I started painting full time. I was lucky enough to work with Nahem Shoa who became my teacher.
I spend a lot of time in Suffolk by the sea and in Southern Spain and Africa.
