A versatile artist with a strong Christian faith, she believes that experience, a talent for painting and a sense of the visionary generates her creativity when working on both spiritual and secular commissions. She has worked with all sectors of the Christian church; traditional Roman Catholic to the new wave of charismatic churches, an Anglican theological college and large and small parish churches.
