WELCOME

I am an artist based in the beautiful Peak District village of Bonsall, near Matlock. My inspirations include the abundance of beautiful landscapes and gardens around me. These, and adventures abroad and on the canal waterways offer me the opportunity to observe and capture the things I see using photographs and sketchbooks.  I am inspired by my love of interiors and flowers, another avenue for my work.

You will find work in textile and paper featured on the site, I am increasing my skills in textile portraits, which I really enjoy.

Marble Surface

A sketchbook is a must for me. Once I have captured an object, I study its shape, size and form, orchestrating my thought patterns to give me visual picture, and providing a way of constructing a new composition to work with. I really enjoy the spontaneity of this process: building the picture up using the elements of collage, paint, mark-making and drawing.  It can take me several hours to find the right items to include in the collage; the work often changing several times before I am happy with it.  
My recent work is looking at flowers, the theme is bright and contemporary. I have a collection of paintings which are abstract reflections on gardens, nature, allotments and the waterways.    Interiors is my sketching book favourite this year.  I am continually working in my sketchbook looking for new ideas for further series of paintings and collections.  I am presently working on interior  studies for my next series.
