I started writing and illustrating children’s books four years ago I now have SEVEN books self published.
I have been an amateur artist for the past thirty five years, mostly painting for pleasure. It was a great way for me to chill out and to express myself in my paintings. I loved painting flowers and I really made this my choice of items to paint.
I was inspired to write down poems about the bees. I had lots of paintings of flowers completed so I took the poems and the flower paintings and put them together and I had the makings of a book.
Just when I thought I would be retiring, a whole new career has opened up for me which I am hugely excited about. I am full of confidence and expectation about the future.
I am a grandmother with three wonderful children and five beautiful grandchildren and I have to say that my grandchildren are my inspiration. I am a qualified therapist and meditate daily.
