Bio: I’m a visual artist. My work reflects existential Experiences, is often autobiographical but not limited to internal insights. Down the spectrum Having a deep connection with nature I’ve become receptive to the external world around me.. Through this lens Im able to value form and transition unveiling the wonder of fleeting moments. This dance between the contrasting world’s inner and outer elicits my curiosity to create and capture. My methodology is experimental however i mostly take to paintings and photography. I have a diverse range of styles from abstract, realism to animation/graphics. I use acrylics and watercolours along with found objects. My curios nature keeps me from committing to a particular style or medium.

Bio: I won a scholarship to art school as a teenager but my parents didn't allow me to take up the offer, so instead I had a good enjoyable nursing career. When I retired I got to art school and did a degree in ceramic and glass. I have shown & sold my work in many places, UK & abroad. In July 2020 I was part of " Home is where the art is" and jointly won series 2 , episode 11 on BBC1, my world got turned upside down with so many commissions, which I am still working on . The first time I showed my work after university was with Rachel Pepper, Director of ARTification’s, support.
Bio: My work is about fundamental shapes and the use of pattern and colour to suggest harmony and spirituality. I am from Ealing and have exhibited in the USA and other parts of Britain and in London. I have taken part in the Borough of Ealing Art Trail. Also I have exhibited in the W3 Gallery on several occasions.
