I worked for several years as a pottery decorator. After the potteries closed and several career changes later I decided to return to education as a mature student to study Fine Art. I graduated from Plymouth College of Art & Design with an honours degree in Fine Art Practices in 2007. Since then I have been painting canvases mostly in acrylic and enjoy the freedom that painting on a large scale gives me.
Often described as ‘energetic and dynamic’ my work is influenced by natural land formations and elements. My sea paintings and abstracts catch the feeling of movement and are usually executed quickly and spontaneously.
I continue to learn new skills and joined the Dartington Printmakers group in 2010. This has expanded my practice and I now teach printmaking workshops at Seale Hayne, for details of classes please contact me.
