Her portrait sculptures are the result of a lifetime devoted to delineating features and sensitively reading the sitter's feelings and character .She is very comfortable with this three dimensional form of expression.
The artist through specialising in portraiture causes her to work mainly from commission. however, her larger paintings as opposed to miniatures are available through auctions or various galleries , Society exhibitions and directly from the artist.
Working mainly from private commission gives a certain exclusivity to her work. She will be only too pleased to discuss your requirements and to add your commission to her achievements.
