ABOUT ME

Award winning / Published Artist

A member of the UKCPS  (United Kingdom Coloured pencil society) 

Originally from Nuthall, Nottinghamshire, now based in Burton on Trent, Staffordshire.

Great great niece of World famous artist David Dewsberry and Great Great Granddaughter of George Henry Dewsberry. Both were employed as ceramic artists for Royal Doulton pottery in Staffordshire.

Even though I have artistic Ancestors it didn’t occur to me that I might have a natural talent for Art.  The desire to be an artist has always been in me, and the opportunity to pursue that part of me came late in life, when my career in the Civil Service came to an end at the age of 50, due to office closures leading to redundancy and early retirement. 

Drawing from photographs, I have an eye for detail and especially love lots of colours. 

I work mostly in coloured pencil, but also with Pastel Pencil, Graphite and Acrylic paints.  I enjoy variety and learn new techniques, progressing myself, with each piece

My heart sings when my finished piece evokes emotion in it’s viewer.
