She says, “I make paintings after spending time in the landscape largely on coastal walks and also from other places I have visited. I use photography and sketches to remember these places. I am drawn to dramatic light and form and use a rich palette of colour.

My aim through painting is to create a congruous  place where light, colour, movement and perspective come together. I build up a blockmaking formation of marks through which a landscape gradually evolves. The physical use of paint reflects the solidity of nature. Starting points are real places but my paintings also portray the relationship between the different ways I use my palette. Through contemplation and creating a work I hope to convey the awe I feel of nature.

I have lived in Cornwall since 1999 and currently work as an Arts Support Worker at Drym Valley Day Centre and with made ( music and dance education), Cornwall.  I studied painting and printmaking at Hull where I did my BA degree in Fine Art 1985-1988 followed by a Post Graduate year in Fine Art at Cyprus College of Art.”
