I am inspired by nature, photographing and sketching; I develop these images into Abstract Paintings and Textile Art. My approach can be spontaneous, letting the figurative elements disperse into abstraction reinforces the relationship between the real and the imagined. In allowing the process of painting to develop instinctively, by combining both the deliberate and the element of chance, permitting the works to take on a life of their own. The synthesis of these contrasting elements, moving between abstraction and the real, together with my emotional response results in the ultimate vista. My most recent work has combined both painting and textiles to produce mixed media images, that I am continuing to develop further.
