I am a mixed media artist making paintings and collages as well as small sculptures from card, paper and textiles. I feel a responsibility to comment on an often unbearable world and take inspiration from National Geographic magazines as well as my own thoughts and feelings. Living with a lifetime of poor mental health my artwork enables me a freedom of expression that can bring together inner and outer worlds. Sometimes I start from a theme such as the Refugee Crisis or Black Lives Matter and at other times the first ground wash of paints or monoprint marks will suggest the creative response.
