Dates of existence



Born in Glasgow. Painter in oil, watercolour and gouache; figures, still life and portraits. Studied at The Glasgow School of Art, lived in Spain 1965-1966 and travelled extensively in France and Belgium. In contrast to the abstract tendencies of most of her contemporaries she has always retained an interest in traditional subject matter. The scale of her work and the exhilarating boldness of execution gives a special significance and weight to everyday subjects. Her first exhibition was in Glasgow 1986 and in Edinburgh the following year.
