Interests and Personality
|Biography||Have had such a variety of lives.
Born on the Isle of Wight, England.
Trained as a beauty therapist and had my own salon.
Went to live in the Gulf Arab State of Bahrain in 1977.
Spent 2 months in Bangkok learning a particular style of fabric painting.
On returning to Bahrain I began freelance work for interior designers, painting on soft furnishings.
This in turn led to a request for a mural and five years of sheer fun followed as I painted trompe l'oeil murals in the palaces of the ruling family and also in the public and private sectors.
Left Bahrain in 1995 and came to Egypt. Mural work not feasible so I began painting regular pictures in watercolour, acrylic and pastel.
Held 3 exhibitions at Ain Sokhna - one of which (Bedouin Girl Series) was a sellout!
I am currently working on enameled jewellery which I am enjoying - pictures to follow - and I will begin spending more time in England in order to market my products
|Interests||Anything remotely connected to the Arts, animals and nature, scuba diving /snorkeling, reading, the internet, cooking, traveling
|Music||As my tastes are very eclectic it is easier to say what I don't like - country & western and very avant garde classical music
|Films||Any Audrey Hepburn movie, The Piano, Memoirs of a Geisha, Girl with a Pearl Earring, Somethings Gotta Give, most Judi Dench films
|Television||Hardly watch television - not my thing
|Books||Too numerous to mention - I devour books!
