She went on to study at Liverpool College of Art in the early 1970’s and after many years painting and exhibiting she returned to Liverpool to study and gained her MA with distinction in 2010 from John Moores University.

Painting has long been her passion and rediscovering oil paints in 2019 she has since concentrated on honing her skills as a painter.
