Although the artist lived to be almost 100 she rarely exhibited, spending a good part of her life in St Ives where she was befriended by many of the other artists working there. This well executed still life demonstrates a thorough understanding of the modelling of form and light through broken brush strokes reminiscent of British Post-Modernist artists such as Vanessa Bell.
