I was born and raised in England. For eight years I lived in religious communities where I came to understand that every task is an opportunity for meditation and every task done with total awareness is a work of art. In my paintings I am concerned with surface. I sculpt and burnish texture onto my canvases so that they become both visually and tactually exciting.
I take my inspiration from the world around me; from patterns in nature and my observations on the human condition.
I live in Chapel Hill and I am a member of the Orange County Artists Guild, The Durham Art Guild and the Visual Art Exchange in Raleigh. I am also a docent at the Ackland Art Museum in Chapel Hill.
