Welcome to my website
I was born and educated in Hertfordshire, about twenty miles north of London. After living in various parts of the world I moved to the beautiful county of Cumbria.
I have lived and worked in the Eden Valley for more than 30 years. After studying at The University of Cumbria, where my focus was textiles, I now work in a range of media and techniques.
For me the past, present and future exist together, both in geological terms and in human activity . I try to interpret this co-existence through my art, whether by using the physical layers employed in collage and printed textiles, or implied layers in my digitally manipulated photographs.
Much of my work is textile based, using a limited, and sometimes subdued colour palette. Screen-printing techniques allow me to create layers of colour, shape and texture. Extra layers are added with stitch and applique.
These techniques together make a piece of art which I hope conveys meaning to those who view it. Sometimes my pieces are left untitled - viewers bring their own ideas, often varied and surprising, to the interpretation of my work.
