During my working life, my career as a trained nurse was complimented by the experience of teaching art and eventually, I become involved with community arts projects in Herefordshire and Gloucestershire. I often worked in hospitals and care homes, bringing the opportunity of creative activities to people suffering from dementia – people whose memory had fragmented. I do not feel that being an artist is something that I have a choice about –  I have painted and drawn all my life and believe that art-making in the widest sense is fundamental to many people’s well-being.
