I have always painted and have mainly been drawn to fine, detailed work, both through jewellery making and watercolours.
Since 2016 I have focused on Botanical Art which brings together my love of watercolours and the natural world.
I have lived near Marble Hill, in Donegal on the Atlantic coast since the early 1970s and have never had to go very far for inspiration.
Just to confuse you,
I also use the name
have poetry published, sold and exhibited some artwork using this name.
