The richness of natural materials is central to my practice.

My work has explored paper as a printmaker and sculptor, clay as a shape maker, and found objects put together as assemblages.

Now I am working across these and other media to allow materials to interact and respond to each other.  This has freed my practice from traditional ways of thinking and working.

I seek out landscapes, buildings, artefacts of my own and different cultures to enrich my creative imagination.

I am embarked on longer term projects which draw on such interplays : for example the interior of the Elizabethan Barn at Sissinghurst Castle with its brick, timbers, bird feathers and abandoned agricultural machinery.

Studying art

Between 2000 and 2017 I have studied part-time in art and design, print making, portrait, sculpture and ceramics at City Lit and Morley College in London, in Tunbridge Wells, Hastings, West Dean, Inkers Studio, Sissinghurst, The Ceramic Studio.


I have exhibited at many venues in London including the Freud Museum, Space, Fish Island and Battersea Arts Fair; and widely in Kent and Sussex especially the Hastings Arts Forum and South East Open Studios.
