Landscape and floral artist now in her 90s (2010) who still paints, despite failing eyesight. She is a member of the Hypatia Trust, and attends weekly workshops in art for the partially-sighted at Trevelyan House, Penzance. A collection of her floral and landscape watercolours (9) are in the Permanent Collection of the Hypatia Trust.
She was a member of St Ives Art Colony before 1939, although living in Newlyn, and active in NAG and NSA post-WWII. She exhibited widely and sold successfully.
Her death was announced in the Cornishman in August 2012. A memorial exhibition of her work will be offered in future. She will be greatly missed by friends everywhere, for her generosity and support to all manner of organisations such as the Acorn Theatre, the Hypatia Trust and the Newlyn Art Gallery.
