I am interested in the luminal spaces within landscape; my work is descriptive of form, light and place in an atmospheric way. I want to convey a sense of a scene from which it is possible to find a personal space and interpretation from within.
The materials and the image that is formed are integral, one makes the other and the interplay of materials and surface are an important aspect of the dialogue.
After finishing my degree I ran my own textile design business, producing designs and concepts for the home furnishing market, selling worldwide (1977-2001) during those years I lectured at foundation and degree level in several universities. Between 1996 and 2002 I undertook art therapy, psychodynamic counselling and PGCE training and qualification, I now teach art in a special school alongside my personal practice.
