“I have lived in the Algarve since 2013, having retired as a Secondary Headteacher in the U.K. My husband and I live near Odiaxere, just outside of Lagos. We both enjoy the sun, reading and hosting our many visitors. I spend my ‘spare’ time gardening, painting and trying to learn Portuguese .

I had been coming to the Western Algarve for over 30 years and it always felt like home. My paintings are inspired by the natural beauty of the landscape and particularly, by the passions and excitement it evokes.

I paint from the heart, using a strong colour palette. I experiment with a range of techniques and try to generate abstract paintings with depth, layers and movement.”
