I've spent my life creating, from making clothes, designing art, doing the garden and interior decor ... hence I decided as a mature student to do a degree in 2-dimensional design at The University of Hertfordshire. Inspiration comes from my travels to the Greek Islands and the simplicity of life there, Cornwall for the beautiful artistic hertitage... plus things I like along the way.
Having a real connection with nature and the surroundings, I have developed a simplistic rustic ambiguous style, using different media. Working from home in Kimpton, Hertfordshire from my Loft Studio and enhancing my love of creating and expressing myself in painting, my style has varied through time which reflects in the experimental nature of my work. Recently I have taken an even more primitive approach, using old bits of wood to paint on or make something from which was triggered by the throw away society we live in at present and appreciating the simple things in life... I have called this phase of my creativity 'Blotches & Tokens' which I feel captures this just fine... Simplicity is the ultimate goal.
Inspired by The Artists Patrick Heron for his bold use of colour and Jean Michelle-Basquiat for his graffiti style.
I have exhibted extensively over the years, including Childwickbury, Living Crafts, Herts Show, Kimpton and Ayot Art Shows to name a few. In 2019 and 2020 my Art was shortlisted for the Delphian Open Call Gallery. For the past 10 years I have been one of the Curators of The Kimpton Art Show.
