You can read more about her on the Wikipedia website.

I have a small exhibit starting today (as it is 5 am) … I started painting this at 9pm last night… made it to about 12, fell asleep for a couple of hours, woke up and started painting again.  I wanted a new painting for my exhibit.  It is only exhibiting for the Public Library in Droitwich but it will be on show for 2 weeks (Through Saturday, 2 April).  So if you are in the area (Droitwich Spa, Worcestershire, UK), please drop by and check it out, the library is really nice too.

Thank you for dropping by, I appreciate all my readers!
