The Folkes-Miller Fine Arts gallery in Long Melford opened in 2005 where Mo was amazingly fortunate to represent some of the finest artists around both local and international, she also showed her own work there.
Mo held fun and lively, weekly adult painting classes in the art gallery, wonderful groups of very special people, she has fond memories of that time.

Mo’s paintings are lively, colourful and atmospheric with strong shapes and depth of feeling. Her work is extremely varied, encompassing a wide variety of subjects. She favours a loose, expressionistic way of working, inter-mixed with traditional methods. Her paintings range from representational to pure abstract.
