Isabel was born in 1940, during the Sheffield Blitz. Her paternal Grandfather (John William Horton) was a Commercial Artist, specialising in large-scale work.

Education was at Dronfield Henry Fanshawe School and Bretton Hall College. She subsequently taught Art at Beighton and Norfolk Park Secondary Schools.

Having married husband Graham in 1963, Isabel stopped teaching in 1967 when their first child, Edward came along, followed in 1969 by James and in 1972 by Amanda. However, during this period Isabel took up a part time adult education post teaching Textiles and Machine Embroidery. She now teaches Watercolour, Acrylics and Creative Needlework to adults, and has been responsible for organising several community artwork projects throughout Sheffield.
