I love colour and pattern and am a bit of a hoarder. My mixed media still life paintings feature ‘treasures’ – textile samples, china, old bottles - all collected over the years. Fruit and flowers are placed with these to give freshness to the arrangements which are often looked on from an aerial perspective. The importance of the fabrics and their construction within the paintings reflect my past in textile design. Working from home in a very cluttered studio, I now enjoy exhibiting across the UK.
