    Biography

    I am an abstract painter. My work represents intense, personal responses to observations, events, or experiences. My focus is on colour, shape and composition. My paintings slowly emerge through considerable re-working, accumulating a history of marks, often surfacing isolated figures and shapes.

    Following art school I worked in the art room of a day centre and was deeply affected by the work and working processes of the people I met there. This impacted my work – an emphasis on not knowing, an immersion in making with a true sense of discovery is something I value and try to maintain in my work.

    In the past few years I have been part of the collaborative project ‘Obscure Secure’ with fellow artists Jacqueline Utley and Claudia Bose. The project explores twentieth century women artists. To date we have worked with collections at Christchurch Mansion in Ipswich and The Red House in Aldeburgh.
