Venus started her creative career with a scholarship to Wakefield Art College after which she was employed as a Technical Illustrator. Until eventually deciding to leave work and became a full-time mother. After her children had grown-up, she returned to her own education; completing a Foundation Fine Arts course at Trent Polytechnic and later qualifying as an art teacher. Venus moved to Keswick in 1988 and started a teaching position at Lairthwaite Adult Education Centre. This led to setting up her home studio and works in varying media which include: oils, watercolours, acrylics and mono-screenprints.

“I cannot remember a time when I have not felt the desire to draw or paint. I paint with acrylics and watercolours and also produce mono screen prints. Each discipline requires a different approach which is exciting and demanding. I am still thrilled and often amazed how an idea in my mind develops into a finished piece of work.

Many people have asked where the name Venus came from, I was named after my maternal grandmother, and to the relief of my daughters the name has not been inflicted on the next generation.”
