I live with my physicist husband, teenage daughter, and a little dog who thinks he’s a big dog. Apart from a couple of years in Milan, Italy, we have lived in Cambridge for nearly thirty years.
My previous job was running a detective agency. Well, family history detection, anyway. I now don’t have time to do much with Helpful Genealogy , but I do miss solving tricky family history mysteries, and researching complex family trees. It’ was like doing a never-ending crossword puzzle. Except that it had to end, as it was too time consuming to enable me to draw and paint as much as I wanted to.
I started painting again as a way of winding down when I was too involved with these baffling mysteries. A chance to use the left side of my brain for a change. I do quick bold sketches, usually in ink, and then often complete with watercolours. I especially love to draw when engaging in my other hobbies – drinking coffee, eating out, and watching cycle racing.
I love doing commissions, painting and drawing my favourite city, and also the places I visit. I have a proven track record in working with companies and organisations to deliver the artwork they want.
If you’d like to contact me, to see how I could help with your project, or just to ask a question, send me an email – firstname.lastname@example.org
You can hear an interview with me on local radio, Cambridge 105, talking about my art, and my story. (Starts at 1hr 38 mins)
