Within my art I'm seeking authentic expression through my connection with the natural world and the stories that run deep through the land.
Intending to express feeling and atmosphere whilst exploring the substance and flow of the materials.
In a world which is challenging, I am purposely letting myself visit what I imagine and revere.
If art is human expression what more to celebrate the energy of all we come from; stars, earth, animals, plants and hidden stories of the tales we live and weave.
From the point of view that the natural world is the source, and the interplay of that, is wildness as well as beauty and a sense of playfulness
With a degree Narrative illustration, I still relish an element of story telling within my work.
Originally working within the publishing industry with many clients, my practice has evolved to printmaking and fine art, allowing myself more of a depth of reflection.
I seek to capture flow and movement, allowing the line on its expressive journey. Certain motives that are meaningful to me repeat within my work. Often using a limited colour palette, the focus on the marks and textures applied to the paper holding sufficient energy. Black ink showing a graphic and powerful surface and subtle variations in tone.
My passion for inspiring, mentoring, and facilitating others, both young and old, has also become a valued part of my practice and the richness of witnessing others creative process is a privilege.
I teach regularly from my garden studio but have also taught in schools, family festivals, hospices and arts festivals.
My website offers a selection of what I do, my artwork and shop.
