Welcome to my website, which is under construction.

Setting up a website is a huge learning curve.   The ‘not so good’ pictures will be replaced by better ones as time allows.  Please bear with me.  

ABOUT ME

Award winning / Published Artist and a member of the UKCPS  (United Kingdom Coloured  Pencil Society) 

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

Great great niece of World famous artist David Dewsberry – He specialised in painting floral studies and is acknowledged as a master painter of Orchids.

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.  Both ancestors were employed as ceramic artists for Doulton’s pottery in Staffordshire.

I draw from photographs, mostly favouring coloured pencils or graphite,  but have also used Pastel Pencils and painted with acrylics.  My drawings are usually on Bristol Board smooth paper or Pastelmat.  I also enjoy Scratchboard art and making Cold Porcelain flowers.

I enjoy being creative, playing Ukulele, and love animals.  I have a gorgeous, cheeky, rescued Westie called Bobby, who is great company.  He keeps me entertained and lies very patiently at my side while I’m working in my art room.
