Originally from Yorkshire I came to live in the Scottish Borders in 1975 in order to further my career in nursing.
Through my enjoyment of hill walking my love of the Borders landscape has grown and grown. I have also been inspired by my many visits to the West Highlands and the Isle of Skye.
In the past year I have found further pleasure in teaching others my self-taught skills.
I started painting in 2003 and have been exhibiting in galleries ever since.
My favourite medium is pastel. I enjoy the tactile nature of working with pastel and the wide range of effects that can be achieved.
