    Hi Mike – what a great painting … she’s not that well-known seemingly … well I thought so … but see now – the BBC featured her in a programme series entitled “Your Paintings” … lovely work and I’ll definitely keep an eye out for her works should I ever visit Norfolk.

    Loved seeing this … cheers Hilary
