About the artist

Large abstract acrylic and gold leaf paintings, smaller works, collages and painted plates inspired by the sea and my love of swimming.

Personal Statement

I make bright and bold, fun paper cut illustrations, statement gold leaf mixed media abstract paintings and hand painted vintage plates from my garden studio. My work has been described as fearless, expressive and joyful. I am an all weather sea swimmer which inspires much of my work. Inspired by nature (in particular the coast and sky) my works of art make a statement in any room.
I use many different mediums, in particular acrylic and gold leaf with palette knives to get a beautiful texture and I enjoy the freedom I have when using these tools. When I'm making illustrations I use paper cutout collage with recycled and found papers.
I showcase my work throughout the year locally in West Sussex and Hampshire and can be seen in PO10 in Emsworth, Artisans Gallery in Chichester and the Chichester Open Studios.
