My creative journey started at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne gaining an honours degree in Fine Art and textile design. An influential painting school there resulted in my passion for this genre. Feeling the need to show my work again after along gap has resulted in successful exhibitions recently at the Forest Arts Centre, the St Barbe Museum and Hampshire Artists. My work is informed by the marks we make on the landscape that surrounds me wherever I might be. I increasingly find that an abstract approach has a stronger parallel with our shaping of the landscape.
