      Biography

      This year I am nurturing a new series of paintings called "Shelf Life", I will show these at Ruskin Mill, Nailsworth in September 2018.

      I am thinking about time and ageing in these new paintings. The flattened cardboard which appears some of the images is from tea, soap and toothpaste packaging. I have also used rice paper with ink to create transparent overlapping images, this technique echos the layering I have used before in my watercolours.
