Being a keen gardener, she is inspired to paint the flora and fauna through the seasons. Still Life and local landscapes are her other favourites. She has had several exhibitions in England and France she spends some time in summer, and had a painting accepted for The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in 2006.
