CURRICULUM VITAE
* degree in education and art, specialising in printmaking
* discovered chalk pastels when teaching a life class
* began using pastels with watercolour to create beautiful depth of colour, loose paintings of flowers and foliage mostly at this time, visiting many famous gardens in the UK
* began to use pastels on white paper because of the luminosity - similar to watercolours - still exploring relationships between colours and patterns in the landscape
* became totally enthralled by the light and colours of Cyprus, like nothing I had seen before ( too busy looking at the water greys of the UK and northern France!!)
* began painting landscapes using pastels * for last ten years been entirely inspired by the richness and colours of the landscapes in Cyprus at different times of the year
* started with an exhibition in Diacosmos, Chloraka since then exhibited every year in Cyprus sometimes in group shows more often alone, four times in Paphos En Plo, twice in Polis Art Cafe, Art Cafe Mesahorio, Wildlife Foundation Kallepia, Art Cafe Tala and in various Paphos hotels, also until this year have regularly taken part in Open Studios
* always attracted to colours and forms of beads, always worn a lot of jewellery, discovered wonderful display of beads in Bead shop in Kato Paphos, began combining colours in strings of beads and the rest is history
* all my life I have made things - character birthday cakes, christmas tree baubles and decorations, home decor items like cushions, mostly sewn items, so it's not a surprise to find myself now making beads
