Introduction Throughout my entire life - art has been my biggest interest. Since my first remembered drawing of a robin with extremely long legs, I have not stopped playing with art. I attended Fashion College in California, and worked as a designer in London for several years. Motherhood followed and I did what I art I could in whatever time I could find. That journey led to decorative painting, furniture painting and interior design. I was lucky enough to be able to study Interior Decorative Techniques, for 4 years on a City and Guilds course. Since then I concentrated on pursuing the art of rose painting, and these beautiful flowers, which I have loved since childhood, have pervaded my life in all aspects – clothing, home furnishing, art and gardening. I do all this surrounded by my two wonderful teens, Lara and Jordan and my hubby Dave, in our Edwardian home with a garden full to bursting with literally dozens of old vintage roses and gorgeous English Roses! Told you I was mad about roses!
