As a child I yearned to be an artist but, looking at art, I was overwhelmed by how an artist had chosen the colours in their painting. Nowadays I have a confident use of bold colour that characterises much of my work.

I am a self-taught artist, although I do read a lot so I must credit my development to those amazing artist/authors who have helped me along the way.  Included are: Angie Lewin, Jane Davenport, Tamara La Porte, Dina Wakely, Mark Taro Holmes, Burne Hogarth, Vic Bearcroft, Anna Mason, Ann Blockely, Alena Hennessy, Traci Bautista.
