Leaving school with A level in Art, I studied at Epsom School of Art and Design. Having lots of fun and creativity I left there with a Diploma in Graphic Design and promptly went to work for some prestigious Creative Design and Top Advertising Agencies in London, working with a copywriter and nominated for awards in our Industry. My background has covered fashion, pharmaceuticals, exhibition design and packaging design as well as book covers.

I have been painting in my annex studio and have joined a local friendly art group. Creativity is a process. In Sanskrit, Shakti शक्ति means “to be able” it is a sacred force that is thought to move through the Universe in Hinduism (check out my story on yoga) Shakti is Cosmic Essence as well as Liberation. It’s most significant form being the Kundalini shakti. It exists in a state of svātantrya, dependence on no-one, being interdependent with the entire Universe.

Yoga and the mark-making we call art, are symbiotic and organic – in that you grow with it and it grows with you. You can express yourself, interact with the Divine energy connect with the Self and also with others.

Inspiration can come from meditation, my yoga practice, the seasons, our 3 teenage sons any place at all. If you are interested in having a piece of work or something prepared for you especially please contact me.
