“Art is the key to all sanity”
I’m a mother and an artist and have been gladly balancing the two roles for over 16 years. Whilst motherhood presents many challenges and I often struggled to find enough time in the day to create, it gives me the greatest joy of passing creative skills to our children. In my daughters, I found the perfect studio companions, honest critics and a newfound love of the elements and landscapes. My daughters have become part of who I am as an artist.
