"Trees and birds are recurring themes in my artwork but recently it has been the flock in flight that has captured my attention and imagination"

Migration is a theme very present in our world and questions of roots and being uprooted, of freedom and belonging are an unchosen reality for so many. A bird in flight can symbolise the freedom we dream of, and when in the company of a whole flock both liberty and community. Rosebay Willow Herb is a flower also called Fire Weed or Bomb Weed because it thrives in land that has been scorched. It always lifs my spirit to see the haze of its magenta flowers reaching for the light on verges and wasteland.

I like to combine different media (oil, watercolour, pastel, pencil) as well as different techniques (drawing, painting, printmaking, collage), in ways that I’m not sure even have an official description. I sometimes refer to my techniques as mono print or monotypes or hybrids. Although you will see repeated motifs in the artwork each one is unique.

I studied Drawing and Painting at Edinburgh College of Art, but have lived in Oxfordshire for the past 20 years, making, exhibiting and teaching art.
