      Biography

      Concepts The work pursues an ongoing exploration of the complexity and multiplicity of any one given moment in time and expresses personal responses to places/landscapes/relationships as well as to the transience of life.These are presented as fluid and airy images anchored through the use of colour, form, line, pattern and texture. 'Actual' observations are transmuted and rearranged into paintings and collages which form an abstract pictorial language of atmosphere and depth, with a satisfying overall surface interest. Influences Art of the 30's and 40's (Nash, Sutherland, Heron, Agar, Clough, Frankenthaler, Matisse, Braque, Picasso). Personal life influences: childhood, motherhood, bereavement, travel, nature and celebration of life. Career path Studied Fine Art in London (Byam Shaw) 1968-72.
