I have lived in Torbay since 1997 and have always had a love for art in all of its forms and if I wanted an 'art fix' I would generally head for St Ives, a place synonymous with art. I was sure thathere in the Bay we probably had a similar abundance of creative talent but where was it, how to find it? What was it that places like St Ives had that we were lacking? What is stopping Torbay being for Devon what St Ives is for Cornwall?

By that time I had already been working successfully with paints on silk and, following my formal studies, my interests expanded across various media and subject matter. Many of my inspirations stemfrom my detailed macro photography of the natural world. I am fascinated by the wealth of colours and textures nature provides, having lived near Dartmoor for many years. Movement, texture and colour are the main elements I look for in my landscape painting.
My work is mainly created using mono type and lino cut printing. Recently I have experimented with multilayered lino prints, however I also enjoy working with different media to create collages. Ioften work from literary sources including fiction, non fiction and poetry. Some of my work was inspired by the poetry of Elizabeth Bishop and was exhibited at 'New Designers' 2012, in London.
