Hello everyone, its me!
I was born in the UK and grew up and worked in London. Later I moved to the north of England and when all my children began school I decided to study Fine Art at Lancaster University
In 1985 I had visited Vancouver, BC on a business trip and loved it. In 1998 I was fortunate enough to revisit Vancouver and my love for the place was rekindled. On my return to the UK I persuaded my family to emigrate.
In 2002, with visas in hand, my husband, 3 children and an orange cat set off on an adventure to start a new life in beautiful Vancouver BC on the west coast of Canada.
We moved into a thriving art community and I just wanted to paint! So that's what I did and have had a really successful following.
My art now hangs in homes and corporations in Canada, the US, India and the UK.
In the summer of 2015 I decided to transfer my artistic skills to furniture and a new love was born!
The two subjects I have painted over and over and am still not done with, are dandelions and poppies so choosing my name was easy.
Dandelions and Poppies make me happy and I hope that shines through in my work.
Creating a niche for myself, I am excited about growing my business. Thank you for coming along for the ride!
