About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Artist,
Location Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, United Kingdom
Introduction I have drawn and painted all my life.After retiring from a career as a professional home economist I gained a B.A.(Hons) degree in art history and a diploma in fine art. I sell my work and have paintings in collections in many countries around the world. I paint scenes from modern life. I draw inspiration from the people, children ,and landscapes and gardens and parks and the art museums and galleries that I see around my home in the lovely city of Cambridge U.K. You will see some links to Amazon.I am not an Amazon associate seller,they threw me out as I am a hopeless sales lady, I do not get commission. I have left the links there as they may be useful to some viewers. I have worked on my family history for many years but the lockdown brought about by the terrible covid virus confined me to home and gave me time to review my story so far. A took a DNA test and was shocked to find that my straight laced ancestors were far from the icons of respectability that I had supposed them to be resulting in me finding some unexpected cousins.
