Biography

The countryside and in particular, horse racing, has been a constant throughout my life. I have worked as a groom, stud hand, stud secretary, racing secretary, racecourse photographer and I am also an award winning racing journalist.

Though completing a Foundation Course at my local art college, it wasn't until 2005 I took up sculpture, after participating in a bronze casting course. Since then I have undertaken many commissions, enjoying the challenge of working in three dimensions.

In 2006 I won the Society of Equestrian Artists Devon Art Week Scholarship and have exhibited with the SEA since 2007. I have twice been their Honorary Secretary, and have been Chairwoman and Press Officer from 2013 to 2016. In 2015 my bronze 'Equus I' was awarded 'Best Arabian Work' at the Horse in Art, the SEA's annual open exhibition. I was promoted to Honorary Full Member on my retirement as SEA Chairwoman.

I have particpated various Open Studio events, sharing with fine artist Michelle McCullagh SEA, winning Somerset Art Weeks Visitors Favourite Venue in 2010 and runners-up in 2011. In 2012 it was Dorset Art Weeks and then Marlborough Open Studios in 2013.

In 2013 I donated auction prizes to the British Horse Racing & Education Standards Trust, Women In Racing and the Homing Ex Racehorses Organisation Scheme (HEROS). In 2015 'David' raised funds as part of Greatwood Charity Race Day at Newbury. Last year the sale of 'Bailey' contirbuted to the fundraiser for Ed Barrett through the Amateur Jockeys Association.
