Born in Preston, Lancashire, UK
Lives works in Crosby near Liverpool, Merseyside, UK
I am firstly a wife, mother to two grown up children, and grandmother to 5 beautiful grandchildren. Secondly, I am the artist behind arts@willow.
After a long career in HR, in late 2020 (during the covid pandemic) I decided to take things a little easier and to find something which would fit around supporting my wider family - especially my grandchildren and elderly parents. So I began to try different painting media and techniques, eventually settling on Alcohol Inks. A few of my friends purchased from me, and gave me the confidence to set up arts@willow in March 2021.
Initially I sold mainly online and via Facebook (as did many businesses during the pandemic), however I have now evolved my markets and often attend local artisan fairs with my work as well as undertaking commissions on larger pieces of artwork.
