ABOUT ME

Award winning / Published Artist

Member of the UKCPS  (United Kingdom Coloured  Pencil Society) 

Born in Nuthall, Nottinghamshire, now living in Burton on Trent, Staffordshire.

Great great niece of World famous artist David Dewsberry,  who specialised in painting floral studies and is acknowledged as a master painter of Orchids.  Employed as Ceramic artist at Doulton’s pottery in Staffordshire

Great Great Granddaughter of George Henry Dewsberry – a talented ceramic artist of mainly tile designs, some of which are in Osborne House, Queen Victoria’s Residence on the Isle of Wight.  Also employed as a ceramic artist for Doulton’s pottery in Staffordshire.

I draw from photographs using artist quality, lightfast, coloured pencils or graphite on Acid free paper. 

I also enjoy scratchboard art, making flowers in cold porcelain (air drying clay), playing Ukulele and Clarinet, and love animals.  I have a gorgeous, cheeky, rescued Westie called Bobby, who is great company.  He keeps me entertained, makes me smile and laugh every day, and lies patiently at my side as I work.
