Collage & Oil on Canvas.
“These small works on paper were completed during the summer of 2015. I was immersed in my garden and delighted by the lush aroma of lavender, it's mauve and violet hues, the cut grass, the fragrance of the pale pink roses and the intense blues of the Delphiniums. These all had an effect on how I worked and what I wanted to paint. The oil paintings on canvas and mono-printed, torn collages explore the qualities of light, colour, form and mark making. I was compelled to work quickly and felt intuitively that this was a part of a creative process that consolidated ideas about collage and clay. These works then came to carve a way forward for an experience I would bring to clay that became as natural as tearing up paper.”
Post Graduate, Chelsea School of Art 1985-86
"Since completing my Master of Fine Arts Degree at Chelsea School of Art, I have continued over the years to develop themes which are consistently central to my work. My paintings are a distillation of experiences, emotion and passion. The strange and magical landscapes of the 1990's or the mixed media collages and more recent expressive oil paintings about nature and the presence of a human spirit within a natural environment that is akin to a paradise.
