I am an artist living and working in St Albans, Hertfordshire and St Ives, Cornwall. I produce a diverse variety of work in a wide range of media including textiles, various paint mediums, inks, collage and printmaking. I have been strongly influenced by the sea and my artistic practice reflects this emotional connection through my use of colour, form and texture. I am particularly moved by the beauty of Cornwall, with its rugged coastline and magical quality of light. On coastal walks I am constantly examining the minutiae within my surroundings and thoughtfully exploring ways to interpret this beauty around me. My wall hung pieces and sculptural forms convey a sense of place and environment. Within my textile art practice I also like to create conseptual works that comment on current social, political and environmental themes.
