Abstract Art


Creating abstract art that represents feelings and emotions through colour and gesture.

I’m interested in broken grids, nature, mythology and spirituality, and read, write, walk and photograph to feed my creative life.

Exploring what’s ‘visible, invisible and veiled’, I paint and print, working with acrylics and oils and use paper, canvas, linen and flax threads.  This theme is evolving to encompass ideas of pathways, mindfulness, otherness and ‘the turn’, following my experiences of visiting Chartres and walking the labyrinth.

My latest work can be seen in my Gallery.
