I am a visual artist who currently uses painting and drawing in my work. Bright colours, patterns, figures and animals, psychedelic swirls of watery paint and solid blocks of colour feature in my paintings. Sometimes I use 'craft' or 'childrens' art materials such as cardboard, ribbons, gems, gel pens and felt tips; as these are non-elitist, accesible materials that are sensual and pleasurable to use. My work is instinctive and it comes to me from subconcious inner visions and from found imagery. I am motivated by ideas of visual pleasure, utopian worlds, alternate realities, escapism and humour.
