I am a self taught artist having developed my techniques over years of trial and error. My creative life started with a love of fabrics and creating clothes for myself and friends, always with a passion for colour and shape. Fifteen years in the fashion buying industry combined my creative side with a career but since being at home to bring up my family I have rediscovered my love for colour and texture, this time using paint and mixed media.

I love to travel both at home and abroad and use the photographs taken on my journeys as basis for my work. Using layers of paper I build up texture to eventually paint on. Colour features strongly in my work and is usually the main inspiration behind my paintings whether it is a single colour or a combination that stands out initially to me  The intricate shapes formed in nature can also be seen in my work.
