One eye sees, the other feels (Paul Klee).

 

Landscape inspired paintings combine what I see with what I feel. Ideas mature in my sketchbooks, thoughts and studio, sometimes for several months. Collage is an integral part of my process.

An experience + a feeling + words = a painting.

A background in art history, teaching of art and English, everyday experiences and an interest in current affairs, provides my inspiration.

Feeling and Revealing, a solo exhibition at Smallhythe Studio was an emotional highlight of 2019 for me, in which I revealed some of the ideas and processes behind my work.

I am Area Co-ordinator for South East Open Studios and an ambassador for Pure Arts, and regularly exhibit across the South East. I also have a background in teaching art and curating exhibitions.

Animation has recently enabled me to enhance the movement inherent in my compositions and has led to a series of moving images.
