About the Artist
I create richly coloured and textured hand pulled limited edition silkscreen prints and paper collages. My inspiration is derived from my travels, to countries as diverse as India and Greece. My prints and collages are not representations of places, but contain elements from observation mixed with my own emotional responses and experiences.
My work explores the interaction of abstract shapes and colour relationships, contrasting controlled, regular elements of structure with looser and more irrational mark making. Bold and expressive colour combinations and the visual effects of colours very close in tone have always excited me. I am fascinated by the ways in which colour can be used to define pictorial depth, to create mood and evoke emotion.
I studied at Cambridge School of Art, followed by a degree in Printed Textiles at Loughborough College of Art and Design which ignited my love of screenprinting. I have worked as a fabric designer and printer, and have taught on Foundation Courses throughout the country.
