IMG_5263This series of mixed media new works uses personal reference material as a backdrop and context for recent investigation. These contextual materials range between the geographical, geological, meteorological and historical to the satirical and metaphorical.

I have lived with my husband in Bridgnorth for over twenty five years having been a teacher of art and design in Stourbridge during most of this time. More recently after retiring I divide my time between several rewarding unpaid occupations and enjoy having the freedom to spend time developing my own work.
