I have always had a huge interest in Art ever since I was a child. I loved art classes throughout my school years and after leaving I attended Dundee College of Commerce and gained a Scottish Diploma in Art & Design. However, on leaving I took a job in Retail Management and art seemed to take a back seat for a few years (20 in fact !!!). Art was just a hobby for many years until I went back to work part time after my children started school. The new job was a welcome return to my original choice of career & I am still there after 16 years! I am a Visual Merchandiser for Rogerson Footwear which I love as this enables me to be creative! In my spare time I enjoy painting modern art. I use acrylics and paint mostly contemporary designs.
