I was born in Lincoln, England under a wandering star, living and working in many places. I now spend my time between London, Walton-on-Thames and Dubai.

In the 1970s I trained in Graphic Arts and Fine Art in the Sir John Cass School of Art, the Putney School of Art, London, and in the Government College of Fine Arts, Calcutta.  In the same decade I was married and had children but continued to be an aspiring young artist. In the following decade I was divorced and needed “a proper job’. Over the years I worked and studied to get professional qualifications. My career has been as diverse and multifaceted as my artistic journey.

I am an Artist, a Leadership Trainer & Coach, a mother and a grandmother, now back with my first love - painting. I believe I have entered the Third Act of my Life and I am looking forward to it with confidence and optimism.
