About the artist
My background is in 3-dimensional design specialising in ceramics and surface pattern. After working in industry for almost a decade I had the opportunity to change direction and focus on painting whilst also teaching mature students part time. This necessitated covering a wide range of ever-changing subject matter.
My initial formal training taught me the importance of close observational drawing to capture the essence of a subject, plus the value of developing craft-based skills.
At the moment my chosen medium is lino printing which I’m using with colour, texture and pattern to translate the everyday things I see into meaningful images.
