I have spent my professional life teaching, counselling and training. Drawing, painting and sewing have always been important to me as ways of relaxing from the tensions this work has entailed.
I have long been attracted to mosaics, and on a chance visit to Briare - a sweet little town on the Loire – I found there is a ceramics factory which throws its unwanted tiles out into the land behind. With a little time and effort I could pick up bags of these tiles and this is what I started with.
I now show at art festivals and trails in France and the UK. I am delighted to find that people like my work enough to buy my pieces, and am particularly pleased when I am asked to make a piece on commission.
A recent development for me has been offering introductory courses in mosaics. If you would like to try yourself, or if you would like to offer lessons as a present for a friend or relation, please click here to get in touch.
Although making the mosaics takes up a lot of my time, I have not let it stop my other activities.
I am still an active counsellor, working mainly with young people and with couples. View Website
