I have always been inspired by the textures, colours and shapes found in nature, and this has led me to the semi-abstract work I now produce. I love working in mixed media, using anything from coloured tissue to broken sea shells , as a surface to paint on. Although most of my paintings begin from a sketch, I find that working in mixed media often leads to unexpected results which can take the painting in a new direction.
Biography: I was born and brought up in Birmingham and took my Art Foundation Course there, at Bournville school of Art. I then graduated from Bath College of Higher Education with a BA Honours in Fine Art. I moved to Scotland in '92 and since then have been working in various media, including printmaking and textiles. Over the last 3 years I have been working in mixed media, exhibiting in solo and mixed shows throughout the UK but mostly in Scotland. I have undertaken various private commissions and one for the Archdiocese of Edinburgh and St Andrews, to produce a Lourdes pilgrimage banner.
