I am a self-taught artist, mostly working when I can fit art in around two home-schooled children, freelance writing and a Guide-dog puppy.
My art is mainly abstract – I am entranced by colour and texture… and the accidental merging together of both. I never plan a piece, whether it be a large canvas or a page in a journal. I like the work to evolve, almost by itself. Sometimes I allow my mind to disengage with the process altogether and just allow my hands to create without direction.
Materials range from watercolours, acrylics, mediums, coloured pencil, crayons, collage, ephemera, tissue paper… even eggshells. I reach for whatever is nearby. I use spray paint, stencils and stamps. I love paint-encrusted paper towels and I adore gel medium for its versatility.
I’m so happy you found my site. Please stay a while and browse my art. There’s not an awful lot here at the moment, but I am adding new work all the time.
