I have drawn and painted since infancy, worked as a screen print designer, taught in Adult Education, then returned to college to study textile design and embroidery. Print and mixed media came naturally.
I use many different mediums, such as print, acrylics, charcoal - above -indeed anything which can make a mark. Each medium adds a layer of complexity to the final image, though I usually work with a palette of only 2 or 3 pigments.
The coast just invigorates and inspires me, particularly poking around tidal waters where low tide is a revelation; mud shapes, tilted boat hulls, and of course the colours of the water as it flows to and fro.
