|The key factor in my work is texture and colour. I use a variety of materials with which to create this.|
I like to build highly textured layers upon the canvas. Sometimes I use papers as a painting medium in itself; at other times, I collect natural materials such as fibres, plant matter, sand, and sacking. I blend various materials to create a relief/collage whereby I aim to illustrate, in a tactile way, the surface of the subject I have composed.
My compositions, though abstract in form, are inspired by nature and landscape. I see the main body of my work as organic art in as much as I feel it takes on the appearance of living matter.
Born in North London, I attended Hornsey Art College and also trained for the theatre. As an artist and sculptor, I have exhibited widely across London and the UK most notably with the Society of Women Artists at the Mall Galleries 2004 -2007.
