CONTACT MEMy work has always reflected where I live, places I visit and journeys I embark upon. The texture, architecture, signage and structures of each new environment dictate the development of my artwork. I am based in the UK but spend many months each year in Andalucia where I have a large studio. I have exhibited in the UK, Spain and Miami and my work is in in private collections in Europe, America, Canada and Australia. The mixed media panels start by building layers of texture and colour. These layers give the final piece a history of building, sanding and scraping away, and rebuilding with paint, thinner collage papers, moulding paste, and paint encrusted stencils until chaos is tamed….. My collages are created from making collagraph, drypoint and relief plates and printing on thin Japanese papers that I then collage in layers to create unique pieces. I also create limited collagraphs made from textured plates incorporating layers and using the same stencils I create for my paintings. I describe myself as an experimental artist. For me it means that I enjoy bending rules, inventing process and exploring layers of imagery. I am somewhat irreverent and always curious, always learning and always experimenting. Originally from South London I did my BA(hons) n Cambridge at post-graduate at Cambridge University. After many years teaching Art and Design in schools and colleges I am now a full time artist. I divide my time between the UK and Spain, teaching workshops and exhibiting in the UK during the Summer months and making most of my work in Spain during the Autumn and Winter. I am sponsored by Golden Artists Colors and regularly teach workshops in both Acrylic painting and printmaking. Do feel free to contact me if you need to know more!
