I paint mainly abstracts, enjoying playing with colour and texture. I also work in mixed-media, textiles, mosaic and make artist bears from recycled materials.

My current work is mainly abstract paintings, explorations of moods and feelings expressed through colour and texture. I often work in intense bursts, finishing a painting in one session, although the ideas are often swirling in my head for a while. Other themes include myths, fairytales, spirituality and dancing figures inspired by my love of dancing. As a child I was always making, drawing and painting. I started working more seriously in the 1980s encouraged by my involvement in the Women’s Movement and women’s art groups of the time.I work in all kinds of media – papier mache, textiles, pastels, mixed media, jewellery and glass bead making as well painting and last year started making mosaics using broken crockery. I enjoy recycling through my work and also work on projects reworking furniture with my partner Barbara Hawley. I make artists bears (and other animals) out of recycled materials.

STUDIO: Attic studio but work, ideas and work in progress will be on display in a downstairs and more accessible room.
