My work is about the things I enjoy; natural things that inspire me because of their beauty, colours and shapes. My aim is to express a mood, or atmosphere whilst conveying the essence of what I am painting hopefully in a new way. Fruit, flowers (and especially roses), feathers, shells and beaches are the subjects of my work.

My collage work is made from the torn and/or cut, pieces of my ink paintings sometimes combined with decorative papers. My style is influenced by my interest in textiles, costume, pottery and illuminated manuscripts.

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