Originally from London, I'm an artist and online course teacher living by the sea in Cornwall in the UK. After completing a Foundation Diploma in London in my early twenties, there was a pause in my creative life while I lived with, and subsequently recovered from, long term clinical depression. I also spent 6 years teaching Montessori, which involved a different kind of creativity!

I returned to painting in 2008, and from 2013 my online teaching work has evolved as a result of exploring art as a means of self discovery and truthful self expression. Having these two strands to my work - my own practice and the courses I offer - brings a rich diversity to my life as an artist.
