I am a visual artist who paints and draws mainly. I work in acrylics on canvas, and also on cardboard and wood. I use bright colours, patterns, figures and animals, psychedelic swirls of watery paint and solid blocks of colour. Sometimes I use 'craft' or 'childrens' art materials such as cardboard, ribbons, gems, gel pens and felt tips; I feel 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.
