“I was a neuroscientist for many happy years but I also loved art and yearned to flex my creative muscles. When we moved to Portishead from London 8 years ago I fell in love with this beautiful and friendly town and decided the time was right to reinvent myself.
I’m constantly inspired by the amazing and iconic sculptures, landscape and architecture here. I also love all things pretty, colourful and whimsical which is reflected in my reimagined artwork of local scenery. It has been wonderful realising this dream as well as having the flexibility to meet the demands of motherhood. I hope my art will bring others as much joy as it does for me”.
