The recent paintings are abstract watercolours with collage on paper.
They are about finding a balance of colour and tone reflecting such events as the weather, time of day, atmosphere and the seasons.
Over time the media used have varied from beach plastic, to paper ephemera or oil pastel and
involved looking at recycling, and the ubiquitous urge to collect.
A Fine Art Graduate from Reading University, I taught Art, painting and printmaking,
in schools and colleges in London for many years.
For two and a half years I lived in the USA studying at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston,
Massachusetts and this experience influenced my work away from realism into abstraction.
Elected an Associate Member of the South West Academy (SWAc) in 2016.
