About me

I mix colours with emotions to help people celebrate life on earth.

You’ll find me out and about in every season - armed with my camera, curiosity and a sense of adventure: walking, watching, gazing.  Noticing shapes, lines, patterns, adjacent colours, shades, hues; scents, textures, movement and sound.  I listen to trees chatter and to running water.  I talk to the birds, watch passing clouds, stargaze and smile at the moon.

Nature feeds my soul and sparks my imagination.

In the studio, any of those captured moments may be present, as I choose colours and gestures to express feelings and emotions, creating original abstracts for you to collect as paintings, prints or silk scarves.

Skywards through the Evergreens

Change the dynamics of a room with a joyous centre-piece and experience living with original art; watch sunlight shimmer over the surface, emphasising tones and textures or see shadows beneath the handmade paper edges.

Style your outfit with a scarf matching your vivacious spirit. Or spread happiness and send a gift-wrapped scarf direct to a treasured friend.

Always observing, thinking and imagining, I have work in private collections in the UK, France, Denmark and the U.S.

In 2015, Dies irae (1) won the John Purcell Paper Prize at the National Open Print Exhibition.
