A note from the artist: “My work is inspired by the converging landscape of sea, sky, beach and farmland, from where I practice my art, on the south coast of England. Much of my most recent work is focussed on the traces of nature and its ephemeral and transient qualities contained in a new body of work entitled ‘Footprints and Shadows’. ‘Painted Oak Leaves’ shown here, is a part of this current work. Working with different media, surface and form, predominantly materials found in the landscape. I enjoy the experimental and contextual process of creating my art sometimes using text and poetry as an instinctive layer. I find the inspirational journey and process of making within the landscape central to the outcome. The “journey” in whatever measure of complexity for me, is fundamental to the outcome.”

I began my creative journey age 3 when I became fascinated with the colour and feel of fabric. By 18 I had a small fashion design business with my friend (Jackie) in Ireland. Later, moving to London, I studied Millinery design alongside Jewellery Design and Fashion Illustration at Chelsea.
This year I was delighted to be accepted into The 2015 International Contemporary Artists Book Vol.X. My work hangs in private collections in the UK, Ireland, USA and most recently, Warsaw. I love to grow and learn as an artist and am currently studying Fine Art.
