Personal Statement

Artist's Statement
I enjoy working with people and I love to create unique contemporary art that brings statements, perspectives and colour into a space. I particularly like the everyday things around me as my subjects and I strive to include a narrative in my work, sometimes a playful one. I am not only interested in the law of nature and how the qualities of light and shade create form, but how the layering of colours also helps to generate that form. I enjoy observing details, which allows me to create an impression of reality.
I hope that my art makes people smile and that it has an impact on the senses.
Art and Biology were my favourite subjects at school. I chose the biology theme and trained as a nurse, specialising in intensive care, where my qualifications enabled me to travel the world. However, drawing and painting were always there in some form in the background and I subsequently studied art in London and West Sussex. I live in West Sussex close to both Chichester Harbour, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the South Downs National Park, and I paint in my garden studio.
