Artist's statement

I studied fashion design in London painting and designing silk dresses in translucent swirling colours as well as designing wedding dresses.

On moving to Belgium I studied Art at the BKO Academie and also at the Academie de Lei in Leuvan where I gained a Diploma in Fine Art. On moving to France I continued painting and sculpting in clay often working from a life model. I like to work spontaneously expressing free flowing emotions movement and sensitivity  using large brush strokes, colours intermingling to  intuitively saturate the canvas.

Exhibitions

Since moving to France I have been involved with many collective and solo exhibitions.

  • Winner of St Jean Cap Ferrat for best Acrylic painting
  • Draguignan -  Winner for best figure painting
