"Having drawn and painted since an early age, leaving school at 16 I started working for artist Dennis Syrett in his art shop. Dennis encouraged my painting, and in my teens I exhibited for two consecutive years at the Mall Galleries in London.
Life thereafter became very busy with work and family commitments leaving almost no time to create over the next 40 years. During that time my love of handmade prints developed – they have a wonderful unique quality quite unlike paintings and are an affordable way to own original art.
Just over three years ago it was my time to start creating again, and I taught myself reduction method lino printing and dry point etching. Buying a starter kit and book, from my very first print I was hooked – I wanted to learn more.
Within a short time, I had confidence in the work I was producing and began exhibiting locally and selling online; my work is now in collectors’ homes in 21 countries. Inspiration comes from my surroundings, occasionally with a twist of humour!" — MARGARET
