I was born in Kenya to Maltese-Irish parents and spent an idyllic childhood in various parts of East Africa. In 1969 when I was 11years, my family moved to Dubai. I was sent to boarding school in the UK and upon receiving unconditional acceptance to attend St. Martins School of Art in London I was all set to pursue my art career. Circumstances dictated otherwise and it was not until 1994, almost 20 years later, that I picked up where I had left off at St. Martins and began my art career. I quickly established myself as a successful watercolourist in Bahrain, Dubai and Saudi Arabia.
Once again in 2000 my life took another trajectory and I moved to Malta. In 2004 I launched my Faces of Africa collection, for which I am to this day best known for. I also began painting colourful interpretations of Malta’s Grand harbour region- Valletta and the three Cities -with its iconic architecture dating back to the Knights of Malta.
About 5 years ago I began attending the Hay Festival and immediately fell in love with Wales. Several annual visits have not diminished my love of this region and I now can easily describe myself as a commuter between Malta and Wales. I eagerly look forward to developing my interpretative paintings of Wales’ beautiful landscape, both urban and pastoral.
