I am a mixed media artist and I make art because it feels good and natural to create – it is like magic, transforming a surface with a few tools and some materials. I love to experiment and my own work is focused on the experience of making, this is a place in which I love to escape to, as often as I can. I create through an accidental and intuitive process, work with a theme, shape or form to produce my final pieces. My ideas shift and change, but generally there is a link to nature and form. I love to play with all kinds of mediums and there is often some form of painting or printmaking involved.
I love to share my knowledge through workshops with non-judgmental encouragement and support in which to learn or develop skills. My own practice filters into the many workshops I instruct, so it is always important that I keep an active art practice of my own. The centre of all this activity is to promote art for its therapeutic value – I know it is as good for you as it is for me! Otherwise, I would love to hear how it is going for you?
My paintings and prints have been commissioned and purchased around the world, through online platforms, exhibitions, art fairs and open studio events.
