Biography

I am a visual artist with a passion for mixed-media layering and design. My work is inspired by many things such as a dream, a feeling, something suddenly remembered, a song, or a particular experience, and explores emotional responses to life, colour, pattern and language. I create a juxtaposition of reality, fantasy, aesthetic and sensation, which seeks to examine the transient moments of real life events within an autobiographical context. My artwork has been commissioned and represented in various publications, with solo and group exhibitions showing in the UK, France, Holland, Spain, Germany, Italy and the USA. I have also taught adult classes and workshops in drawing, printmaking and painting.
