Primarily I work with acrylic paint and ink, collage and mixed media. The acrylics are applied with rollers, pieces of shaped wood, card and any found materials. Collage materials comprise of torn or shaped tissue paper, newsprint, and magazine illustrations. Details are also added with oil and chalk pastels, pen and ink. Like many artists my inspiration comes from the subject matter. Experimenting with colour, media and techniques I find very rewarding. By the very nature of how I apply the collage, paint and inks I can never fully predict the outcome. Along the way many accidents happen, interesting colours and unique shapes emerge. Boats and harbours, landscape, including my native Shropshire, town and cityscapes all provided inspiration for my impressionist style.
