I have been drawn to Cornwall for a number of years as an escape from the pressures of work. The landscape of west Cornwall has helped me access my inner-self, through immersive, reflective walks through its coastal landscape.
Capturing this landscape through photography, discovering emotion behind the lens and re-calibrating my relationship with this landscape has helped me create high-definition studio paintings using layered painting with subtle washes to reveal in meticulous detail, the dynamic colour, texture and drama of this honest, unforgiving and beautiful landscape.
I have expanded my approach and passion for making art; working ‘plein-air’ enjoying the immediacy and freshness of mark-making in new media; harnessing my life-long interest in technology has found me exploring the iPad as another tool for making art.
Challenging my own boundaries and techniques, sheds light on why I make art.
As a trained textile designer, I worked in an acclaimed design studio in Paris during the 1970s, I am pleased to share examples of some of my work on this website.
I hope to introduce a range of wrapping paper and wallpaper based on some of these designs during 2021. Please subscribe to my newsletter for updates.
