Circle Series 1  Lithograph  Unique Print

Currently, my main practice is drawing, encompassing printmaking, both lithography and mono printing.

In the past I have worked 3-dimensionally with clay, steel and mixed materiels.

I draw from life and also in abstract. The act of drawing, of putting marks onto paper or any surface is always a journey. Drawing can sometimes be a struggle, and at other times a joyful flow. If I trust the drawing process it can take me, creatively, somewhere that I didn’t expect.

I love the mechanical element of printmaking that can produce fascinating results as well as go astray so easily! Things can happen that I didn’t plan . . . happy accidents can sometimes express more than a planned outcome.

I enjoy working creatively with both children and adults. This is as important to me as my solitary work.

I have completed an MA in Community Arts, a BA in Sculpture and a Diploma in Art and Play in Therapeutic Work With Children.
