Art to Adore

I would like you to find the art on these pages, stimulating, interesting and thought provoking. I’m hoping you find the pictures pleasurable to look at. I aim to try to redress the balance of the ugliness of the world with a bit of gorgeousness.

A wee bit about me

I have been an artist for many years and now, thanks to the internet, I can bring my artworks directly to anyone who can access it (like you).

I started out in Nuneaton, a small town in the middle of England, but left at the age of 18 to go to Art College. I have combined being a mother and an artist with different jobs – as an art teacher, outdoor instructor, youth worker, bar staff, shop assistant etc. All through, however, I continued to make art and even occasionally sold it.

I have lived, exhibited and travelled all over the world and this has had a direct influence on my work.

I currently live in Malawi (SE Africa) and help organise Abantu Emporium, an Art Gallery and Craft shop in Lilongwe, the capital city. I also participate internationally in exhibitions and Art Fairs, most recently Glasgow Contemporary Art Fair (May 2018).
