I spent much of my early childhood in Germany and Africa - where I read every book on my parents' shelves, became fascinated by the patterns on everyday objects, and learned to make lino-cuts. Wereturned to a dark rainy London when I was in my teens. I detested school but was rescued by an inspirational art teacher, Meriel Cardew (wife of the potter Michael), a vivid, kindly figure. Highlights included visits from Michael and from the Nigerian potter Ladi Kwali.
I take my inspiration from Nature, drawing and making prints of the birds, plants and animals I see around me everyday and sometimes those that are a little harder to find. Sketching from life is thestarting point of everything I do, it feeds both my drawing and printmaking. I am especially interested in birds, how our relationships with them shift over time, what we have lost and gained. Guest Artist at Gingerbread Gallery, Hadlow. Solo exhibition, Below 65 Gallery, Maidstone.
