of my current subject matter is developed from happy childhood
memories of playing in the garden, walking through bluebell woods,
making or buying cakes for tea, reading stories (especially the
Princess and the Pea), picking and pressing flowers and playing
with the contents of the button box. Looking at aquariums and ponds
or walking along beaches often become the starting points for compositions.
Drawing is the next stage, and I keep a visual diary in the form
of a sketchbook.
Working from the sketch book studies and direct observation I create
vibrantly coloured images combining painting and stencil based
printmaking processes. Layers of inks are applied directly to the
picture surface using small hand held rollers, allowing each layer
to dry before adding the next. By wiping off areas that are not
quite dry and drawing into the ink, hidden colours are revealed
and the richness of the image is gradually built up. The finished
pictures are usually referred to as Monoprints or Print-based Paintings,
and are all one-off original pieces of work.
My work is exhibited nationally and internationally in group and
solo shows. Paintings in Hospitals (Wales) hold a number of works
in their loan collection.
