I was born and have lived all my life in Dorset. At school I loved Art and Needlework.
I worked for Wimborne Pottery for many years making and
decorating the pots which gave me confidence with a paint brush!
Hobbies then were knitting, dressmaking and patchwork. I joined Fran Shearing’s evening class (more years ago than I wish to count!) and found my love of watercolours.
Lately I have experimented with inks and have come out of my comfort zone to try Acrylics. I thought when I retired I would be painting all the time but I have now taken up upholstery as well!!!
I wonder how I ever had time to go to work!
