Surface Design December 14, 2018 11:59
I’ve recently had to make a presentation of my work and its interesting looking back to see what I’ve done over the years. It’s a useful excercise as it helps to see the direction that my work has taken. I’ve always thought I may be a bit too flighty as I’ve chosen not to stick to just one medium over my career, but it’s made me realise that I am a surface designer. It doesn’t actually matter what the surface is or the process that I choose as it’s the design work that’s my signature.
Chopping Boards December 13, 2018 15:35
Ive used my chopping boards as decoration in my kitchen. And, what’s more, they make perfect place mats for my wooden table!

I enjoy working with my hands and digitally and this image is derived from one of my collages and then recoloured on my computer. I do like the nice sharp lines and the flat colour!

Collage November 29, 2018 11:00
I just love cutting and sticking paper to make interesting compositions with colour and shape. The paper I’m using is a mixture of pre coloured and screenprinted in hand cut and machine cut shapes.
In this piece I’ve decided to work with a very limited colour palette. I’m struggling to contain myself but I’m determined to only use tones and shades of about 5 colours!

Its now 2 days since our open house event and I’m still in recovery!! It was sooo busy and it was amazing to have so much support from our local community. A huge thank you to all the artists for their work, DNA for the live harp and fiddle music, The Ale House for the bar, the Gluten-Free Baking Company for the cakes and to everyone who came.
Here are some images from the event

Snowdonia October 11, 2018 22:21
I've just been on a road trip delivering work to galleries in Wales and Stratford upon Avon. I was so lucky to choose a very warm and sunny couple of days in October. It was sooo beautiful.

I love this little spot on the wall by my window with the hanging plant, and the light is perfect for taking photographs of my new floral work
Wild Flowers on the Wall August 21, 2018 22:34

In the Wind Paper Cut Collage July 23, 2018 22:05
This is one of a new body of work that I am creating based on the silhouettes of flowers and leaves. It represents my take on nature and is colourful, joyful, simplistic, strong, graphic and stylised. It is inspired by a bed of wildflowers and I have reduced the imagery down to shapes whilst maintaining the movement and vitality of the flowers in their natural environment.
It is a cut out with collage and it’s a joy to be using blocks of colour having previously concentrated on the striking dynamic of black and white.
Floral Collage July 20, 2018 12:00
I’ve been experimenting with shape, colour and collage and have created this large scale, highly detailed floral artwork.
