Welcome to my website, where you can visit my online shop, book painting workshops, or learn about my latest creative projects and fundraising.
At the age of 47 on September 12th 2018 I got the diagnosis of Young Onset Parkinson’s Disease (PD). In the UK, there are less than 48 per 100,000 women under 50-years-old living with the condition (data: Parkinson’s UK).
I’m determined to keep going, and enjoy my creative practice and continue my work to raise awareness of the condition and what it means to those that have it.
This is my online space to record, explore and share my experiences.

Here’s a video from a presentation I gave at a mental health awareness event in September 2021, and the video journal for “The Artful Parkies”, the art tour I did with Chris Stanley around Yorkshire in a camper van, connecting, creating and changing perceptions.
I think they sum up me and my approach to PD better than written words can.
And my latest interview on BBC Radio Nottingham:
Latest posts from my Art Road Trip

- Month 6. Scotland and the Edinburgh Fringe. 12th – 28th September 2022I’ve added this blog as part of the art trail as it’s a massive creative part of this year’s journey of acceptance, adaptation and ambition, and was initially funded by Arts Council England.
- Month 5. Liverpool 1st to 4th August 2022This leg of the trip was slightly different to the others as I stayed in a small-rented house for just 4 days. This was due to me spending most of the rest of August in Edinburgh preparing and performing at the Fringe.
