Animal lover, artist, mother. I love painting my animals wild and whimsical with all their bumps and warts!

While recovering from a back injury I had while working as a cordon bleu chef in London I took up silk painting. I loved it and never went back to cheffing. Instead I made my living selling my hand painted silk vests, scarves, ties, cushions and so on.

At a London trade show I ran into Jacquard Products, the company that makes the silk paints I use. They offered me a job. I took it and made the leap to California in the US. During the ten years or so that I worked at Jacquard I got married and had a daughter.

Wanting to spend more time at home with my daughter I quit Jacquard and returned to my art. My husband, daughter, and I have since moved to the far north of California and I’ve branched out into watercolor, banging up tin flowers, jewelry making and more. Creating seems to be in my blood. If I go to long without making something I might just explode!
