ABOUT ME

Award winning and 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 – who 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 of my ancestors were employed as ceramic artists for Doulton’s 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.  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 love bright colours. 

I specialize in coloured pencil, but have also worked with Pastel Pencil, Graphite and Acrylic paints. 

I enjoy variety and learning new techniques, and progress myself with each new piece.

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