She wrote on her website: “I’m taking part in this year’s series of Make it at Market on BBC1 where I was mentored by the phenomenal Sharon Walters, she has taught me so much in such a short space of time and she has done it in a way that has upheld the integrity of my work.

“This is a lifelong journey for me and I will carry on developing my work by exploring portraiture, landscapes, and the use of vibrant color in acrylics and oils to capture all that we hold most dear (even if that involves painting the odd chicken, I love chickens!).”
