Dec 2013 - Christmas and an exciting New Year nears
After my most successful "Art on the Prom" exhibition so far, I'm now gearing up for 2014 by throwing myself into creating some new works. I have recently moved to Shotley and am excited to be able to re-join the Suffolk Open Studios as a member of the Shotley Peninsula art trail - a group of 6 artists working in a variety of mediums and genres guaranteed to appeal to all art afficianados. More details will be published early in the New Year on the Open Studios website - I'll provide a link from my website as soon as it's available.
I've created a "What's New" gallery so my regular visitors can
quickly check the latest additions to my portfolio. I've a full summer
season coming up both for exhibitions and for working on new paintings
and I'll try to keep the "exhibitions" page up to date with dates and
I've developed some rather unique methods for creating beautiful gift cards and bookmarks. I've put full details on this page
My art is heavily influenced by my surroundings - the beautiful
countryside, villages and people of Suffolk, UK. I have a particular
affinity for animals, and my six cats provide
endless inspiration as they play and explore.I also like to experiment with more avant garde abstracts and
architecture, and occasionally like to dabble in sculptural pieces made
from everyday objects, glass and even bone.
I received a BA Hons in Art in 2004, studying as a mature
student whilst bringing up 5 children and looking after the menagerie.
I hope you enjoy looking at my work and find something to interest you. If you do, please feel free to e-mail me - the details are on my 'contact' page.
