My ink collages and paintings are inspired by the colours and patterns found in the natural world and influenced by a love of the decorative arts. My aim is to express a joyful atmosphere and an appreciation of the natural world and our place in it.

Working from my home studio my collages are made from a combination of torn and cut, stuck and unstuck pieces of my ink paintings and decorative papers whilst my finished ink paintings are painted onto wood panels.

I am from Sussex and studied Art in the late 1980’s in Eastbourne and Brighton and re-started painting in 2012.
