I was born in England and spent my childhood in Harare Zimbabwe. My early memories of the African landscape left a lasting impression. We came back to live in Britian when I was 11. After my schooling I studied window dressing at college and worked in many London department stores. After a period of bringing up 3 children I decided to return to full time education and studied Fine Art at the University for Creative Arts in Farnham receiving my BA in Fine Art in 1999.
We decided to move to Wales permanantly in 2001 after spending over 25 years as visitors. Since then I have spent my time establishing my studio and being involved in exhibiting locally and holding 'open studio' events. I spent a month in Almeria Spain on a residency at the Fundacion Valparaiso in 2003 and in 2009 I received an MA with Distinction in Fine Art from the Aberystwyth School of Art.
