I design all of my own artwork, using a variety of mixed media to create, including textiles, print making, collage and sculpture. Inspiration comes from my surrounding environment, particularly the area where I live, which borders the Montgomery canal and River Severn. Situated in beautiful countryside, it has an abundance of flora, fauna and wildlife.
As a printmaker and visual artist, I use a variety of printmaking techniques as well as other visual media. My current work is inspired by how patterns in nature are reproduced in our culture, from mathematics to religion to the domestic. It is about time and our place in it, inheritance and the life cycle, and is in the form of screen prints, etchings, collagraphs and textiles.
Photographs – ethereal images, evocative of fleeting memories
