We work mainly in clay, but also in wood, stone, plaster and found objects to create domestic sized objects. Some are useful, some nostalgic, some comic, and some beautiful. Portraits of people and animals can be commissioned . We meet on a Thursday afternoon in Bridgnorth, new members are welcome.
My work technique is inspired by Chinese Brush painting. The present subject matter is the result of a trip to China last October. We were lucky to be there on the 70th Anniversary of the Peoples Republic if China. I have recently moved from painting on canvas to paper using different techniques. I am growing more fond of the decorative aspect of expression.
My work is generally in mixed media. I use unusual found objects that have a history . I utilise these in mosaics, collage, paintings and dioramas. Because of the way I work and materials used my pieces can have an aged look and signs of wear. This, I believe, adds to the work rather than detracting from it.
I work intuitively, responding to my environment and the world of my memories. My exploration encompasses different media, and the emphasis is on colour, line and texture.
