BIO:Originally from England, I came to the USA in 1966 after graduating from Drama school in London. My portfolio of costume and stage designs won me a job at a commercial art studio in Indianapolis where I also attended a couple of evening classes at the John Herron School of art. Later I taught elementary school in New York City! After a hiatus for marriage and children, I returned to my artwork.
Residing in Houston, Texas I became known for my acrylic murals in homes and businesses and was featured on several television shows in this regard. At this time I began watercolor painting and for a time served as Administrative Director for the Watercolor Art Society-Houston. I started teaching watercolor in the early 1980’s. After the publication of my first book entitled “Watercolor Right from the Start” I began teaching painting workshops throughout the USA, Mexico, Canada and Europe.
I still live in Houston with my husband; and with the kids now grown and grand kids growing I divide my time between painting, writing. I also like to work in the garden while my three cats play, surf the internet for art sites and listen to the BBC World Service Radio!
