About my work

About my work

The paintings for this website include most of my most recent works. I have now begun to paint on a much larger scale as well as develop different subjects.

I have recently moved over the Pennines to live in Penistone, South Yorkshire, with my husband David. We needed to be nearer to our daughter and grand daughters.
We both lived and worked in Nepal for 2 years in the 1980s doing Voluntary Service Overseas.
Our experiences in Nepal have made us who we are. I was thrilled to return in 2017 and am planning my next trip.

We have two grown up children, Peter (and wife Katherine) and Anna (and husband Lee) and 2 beautiful Granddaughters - Sophie Rose and Maisie (and a puppy called Douggie).
I was the organist at St John the Baptist, Hey for over 10 years and it was a great wrench to leave.

I am working on my 7th visual arts project with the children at Medlock Valley Primary School in Oldham on a project entitled ' Fabulous Fitton Hill: Our Art Village' teaching drawing skills based on the school environment. Last year we made multicultural art in 3D !!!

I started the Friday Painting Class at Saddleworth Museum and Art Gallery in 2009, and the Thursday, Grotton Painting Class in 2013, for adults, some of whom had very little or no experience of painting, we all learn lots from each other. We use mainly watercolours and acrylics in alternate weeks and on occasions pastels and other media.

My classes are now held fortnightly in Grotton, both on Fridays, a morning and afternoon session. New members are always made most welcome at both classes and can attend either class (as long as you let me know, so there are enough materials and cake!)

I have recently started an art class in Penistone held on Mondays.
I provide all materials, resources and instruction as well as refreshments.
