"On my walks along the beach, I would collect driftwood and other found objects that I would later assemble and work using acrylic paint. The images were based around my ink drawings and would take the form of boats, cottages, beach huts and Sea Gulls, with no hint of a person in sight and always slightly humorous. Now they have a somewhat fun and burlesque feel to them and people too."

After a couple of blissful years painting and enjoying some part-time lecturing at Norfolk College and at Hertford Regional College, she decided it was time to get a 'proper job', and started studying for a PGCE in Art.

Now, since the birth of her baby daughter, she has returned to teaching but on a part-time basis, and is once again painting, exhibiting and selling her work through galleries in Norfolk and Suffolk.
