Because of my love of animals and wildlife, I find myself with a small studio on our farm in Kent, overlooking the water as the swallows dip and dive, ducks upturn in search of food, fish making concentric rings, while I draw the latest commission.
My small dogs, Molly the Lucas Terrier & Minty the Coton de Tulear, sit on the sofa I never get to use myself! I only draw in pastel/conte pencil, no other medium, as this comes most naturally to me.
I’ve had a wonderful selection of clients and have been lucky enough to be commissioned to draw dogs for the Queen and other members of the Royal Family.
I lived & worked in London for years, for a concert agency, the National Trust Head Office and then “Survival”, Anglia TV’s brilliant wildlife documentaries. Next I became a wildlife & children’s & wedding photographer & the “baby photographer” at the Portland Hospital and St. Mary’s Lindo Wing.
I also give talks with a friend about the amazing pioneering charity, “Medical Detection Dogs” – see Daisy on My Work page, who I am proud to say I bred as well as drew – well worth looking at their website: medicaldetectiondogs.org.uk.
I have a husband and two adult children, plus dogs & chickens… the usual country stuff!
