I find myself preoccupied with flowing lines, colour, repetition in mark making and the energizing quality of light. The fluidity of silk painting has been a catalyst for letting go of visual boundaries and my interest lies in spontaneous art making and the explorative use of mixed media. The sensory experience highlights the importance of enabling artistic expression, made visible through the tangible nature of a medium. My love for making mosaics seems to underline the significance of touch.

I have been an artist, living and working in Wales since 1984, and enjoy sharing creative experiences with others. The journey has been rewarding and involved much work and play.
