Biography

I have loved to draw and paint all my life, but was discouraged from going to Art School by my parents.  I trained as a primary school teacher, taking Art as my main subject.  I taught in state primary schools and later, after having my two children, taught Art and French up to GCSE in a Christian School. 

After retiring I ran a puppet team, taking Christian assemblies in primary schools in Herefordshire and Gloucestershire.  I have also been illustrating Shell books, which are simple reading books for use in third world countries.

I believe creativity is a God-given gift and like to use it to express the beauty of God’s creation and to serve in Christian ministry.  I mostly paint in acrylic or watercolour.  I now exhibit regularly with three artist friends in Hertfordshire, raising money for local charities.  I was recently commissioned with others to make a painting for a local choral society, to display in a church for their performance of Haydn’s ‘Te Deum’. 

I will be exhibiting my work in my local Art Society’s members’ exhibition in October.  I also love to have opportunities to be creative in my local church.

Statement : As a member of Hertford Art Society I do a painting every year to illustrate the choral work they perform in the Spring.

News : Hertford Art Society will have their Open Exhibition in May this year in Hertford.  Details will be on their website.
