Throughout her life her main media has been watercolour and she has washed soft English landscapes and vibrant still life paintings on to the paper. As a tutor teaching art to adult artists over 30 years she has developed a wide range of imaginative styles to captivate her students. Her inspirations have come form Turner, klimt and Fairchild.

Her art work has been published and Oxfam produced a range of greeting cards from her collages. Her work has sold internationally.
She has always been captivated by the mystique of the past and has created a very unique style of Heirloom Collage using vintage finds and natural materials which relate to people and places. These are sourced from a wide collection of Victorian photos, and collections of antique letters. Softly written words in pencil often feature in her paintings and her latest styles are detailed and contemplative.
