A little bit about me
I am the Company Secretary and Treasurer of Knighton Lane Artists group, a very dynamic group of Artists where I have studio space. We are constantly planning exhibitions and have received grants for improving the building in which we work.
I belong to Leicester Sketch Club, and am an Associate Member of the Society of Feline Artists. I have been the President of Leicester Sketch Club and the Membership Secretary of the Society of Feline Artists, which is a national society that holds an annual exhibition at the Llewellyn Alexander Gallery in London.
My work has been exhibited in Leicester, Nottingham, Derby, London and in Rixenstart, Belgium. The Belgian exhibition featured artists from Germany and England.
I have won an award for the Leicester Sketch Club Prize, awarded by Leslie Goodwin RI and have had paintings accepted at the City Gallery, Open Exhibitions.
I occasionally open my home studio to the public and have taken part in Hidden Treasures, the Leicestershire Open Studios.
I have studied under a number of professional artists to learn my skills of watercolour painting and oil painting including a certificate course at Leicester University. I am now studying for a Fine Art degree at Leicester DeMontfort University.
