I am a mixed media artist allowing myself to make art and play every day. I have been a practising local painter and ceramic artist since 1993 when I was a founder member of the Island Studio in Rugby town centre.
My work always reflects my love of colour, surface pattern and texture - whether it is my Pottery, Painting or Print, especially mixed media intuitive painting, collage, linoprint, gelliprint and ecoprint.
But I enjoy working in all media; taking my influences from a variety of sources including the landscape, architecture and the botanical world. My latest mixed media Paintings embrace layers and ambiguity, some influenced by a recent trip to Norway.
I have exhibited many times, with local Art Groups, and nationally. I have held a major solo exhibition in Rugby, and have organised and curated many group exhibitions, including the Community Space Exhibition held in the main gallery at Rugby Art Gallery & Museum.
My work can be seen at Fairs, Exhibitions and in Warwickshire Open Studio events with which I have exhibited from the beginning, and for which I used to be Area Co-ordinator for Rugby.
My work can also be seen in two books: 'The Potter's Guide to Ceramic Surfaces’ and 'Ceramics and Print', second edition.
