Brief Biography and Artistic Journey


I am a UK artist based in East Anglia, predominantly painting with oils on canvas. I began painting seriously in my early twenties. Encouraged by a string of commissions from work colleagues and friends, I started exhibiting in local and national art exhibitions. My artwork caught the eye of a renowned publishing house, launching a successful illustrating career. Over the next twenty years, I produced floral and wildlife watercolours for greeting cards and stationery, working with leading publishers including the Medici Society, UK Greetings, and Woodmansterne Publications.


Currently, I am represented by Green Pebble Cards, who specialize in fine art by UK artists. This partnership allows me the freedom to paint in my preferred style, which has evolved significantly over time. I studied botanical illustration with The Society of Botanical Artists and earned a Diploma with Distinction in 2007.


I have hosted three major solo exhibitions at Norwich Cathedral, The Gallery Wymondham, and The Assembly House Norwich. I have also exhibited in The National Exhibition Wildlife Art in Liverpool, Art in Nature Museum Gloucestershire, Laing, and Patchings. On February 20th, 2020, I was honored to win first prize in Octopus Energy and Artfinder's environmental art competition 'Portraits from the Precipice' for my piece 'The Future's In Our Hands'.


I am a mother to three daughters and have balanced childcare with painting throughout my career. Now that my daughters are adults with their own careers, I have more time and energy to devote to my painting practice and enjoy the freedom to travel and create larger works.


In recent years, I have transitioned from watercolours to oil paints, favoring a more impressionistic style for figurative and landscape works. I relish the application of loose brush strokes, finding that oil paints better suit my expressive style with their rich textures and vibrant colors. Painting is an integral part of my daily routine, serving as my form of therapy and keeping me happy and grounded.


My artistic influences include 19th-century artists like Gustav Klimt, John Waterhouse, Sir John Everett Millais, Claude Monet, Mary Cassatt, and Berthe Morisot. My current work reflects an expressive impressionistic style, capturing the atmosphere and mood of my subjects. I often draw inspiration from remote natural settings, where the sounds and scents are as evocative as the visual experience.


Back in my studio, I work from sketches, color studies, photographs, and even short films to develop my ideas into finished oil paintings. These works vary in shape and size and are often part of an ongoing theme or collection, such as my series inspired by Claude Monet’s garden in Giverny. This garden, created over a century ago as an artist's muse and maintained as Monet envisioned, offers endless inspiration through its seasonal and atmospheric changes.


I employ a warm-colored ground and a wet-on-wet (alla prima) painting technique to capture the soul and immediacy of my subjects. Preferring visible brush strokes over blending, I explore vibrant colors and subtle hues that enhance the dramatic and vibrant nature of my landscapes, often devoid of human elements but filled with native wildlife or domestic animals. My training as a botanical illustrator has deepened my appreciation for the natural beauty of plants and flowers, continually inspiring my work.

Our Mission and Actions

At THE ART HUB, our mission is initially focused on addressing a profound imbalance within the art world, specifically catering to women artists. In the current landscape, a mere 5% to 15% of artworks traded at auctions are created by women, starkly contrasted by the overwhelming 85% to 95% of works by male artists. This disparity is not only confined to auctions but is also prevalent in exhibitions, where male-created art significantly overshadows that of their female counterparts.

By concentrating our efforts on female artists, THE ART HUB aims to counteract this imbalance and champion women within the art community. This initiative is designed to amplify the visibility of women artists, making their creations more accessible to a wider audience, and ultimately striving for a more balanced representation of genders within art auctions and exhibitions. By prioritizing women in art, our platform boldly advocates for equality and diversity within the art sector, signaling a commitment to reshaping and enriching the cultural landscape.

Personal Statement, Visions, and Goals


From a young age, I was captivated by mythology and ancient history, greatly admiring the works of artists like Alma Tadema, John Waterhouse, and the Pre-Raphaelites, who drew inspiration from literature for their artwork. This approach is something I have always wanted to explore in my own work. I have been researching UK myths and legends to weave these stories into my paintings. Last year, I completed 'The Wren and Fairy,' inspired by a local folk tale from a village named after the myth. Although this painting has sold, I plan to continue this theme with more works on Arthurian legends and Greek mythology.


My background as a botanical illustrator and my love for gardening give me a deep appreciation of plants and flowers, which I incorporate into my paintings. Adding botanical elements to the foreground not only provides detail and interest but also helps to anchor the painting, offering depth and perspective without detracting from the overall composition.


When painting landscapes, my goal is always to convey the awe and wonder I feel upon viewing a scene. I want the viewer to feel connected to the place and share in my joy and love of the natural world.


I am drawn to water in all its forms — from waterfalls and waterlily ponds to the sea—likely influenced by my being born under the sign of Pisces. I plan to continue incorporating these elements into my work, reflecting my fascination with aquatic scenes.


Traveling to wild, remote places is a future ambition. I work in thematic collections, deeply exploring a subject multiple times before moving on to a new adventure. The future is brimming with possibilities, and while I have more ideas and reference material than hours to paint, my intention is to continue creating art with love and passion for as long as I can.
