About the Artist

A brief summary:

  • passionate about art since I first held a pencil
  • North London Collegiate School - encouraged creativity
  • Bath Academy of Art, Corsham - BA graphic design
  • designer, educational television
  • increasing interest in visual communication and educational media
  • British Council Media Department - running courses in UK and overseas
  • City University Business School - MBA
  • running an educational software company with my husband
  • at present drawing, painting and making, and revelling in the freedom to enjoy and explore art for its own sake.

    • How I work:
      With notebook and camera, or increasingly an i-pad, I try to capture what strikes me about a scene. I enjoy sketching on the spot, but prefer to bring ideas back to the studio and work there from my sketches and photographic reference.

      Current interests:
      Paper cutting - using line work, precision and other graphic design skills.
      Painting - it's important not to limit oneself to tight detail, and I aim to work freely, using loose brushwork and thick paint to create images that are strong, lively and colourful. At present I'm enjoying exploring mixed media in a series inspired by a visit to Fuerteventura, with its stark landscapes and varied cactuses.
      Assemblages of words and objects - using my own lettering designs hand cut from paper, plus found objects including pebbles and local Thames Valley flints.
      Cards - many of my works are available as greetings cards.
