The basis of my work begins with sketching from life. These sketches are then developed further in my studio into various art forms including drawing, painting, collage, construction and printmaking. My love of texture is explored through the use of recycled materials including paper, fabric and wood. I have a deep appreciation of natural materials and I always use water based inks and pigments.

Inspiration is taken from life experience, nature, birds, animals and Japanese art and culture. My influences are many and varied and I am always open to experiment and change.
