I am passionate about the landscape and the freedom it offers – it provides a huge canvas.
‘Taking my felt for a walk’ is an on-going project where I take my felt out into the landscape and capture the moment with photography.

My MA final project - ‘squishy, peaty, boggy and wet’ - is an adventure through Dartmoor tracking the St Michael ley line and exploring the Neolithic sites en-route.

Colour is a feeling at the heart of everything I create and my work is an expression and response to what I see and experience in the world around me. My creative practice is rooted in the tradition of painting from where I can choose to follow any number of directions mixing diverse materials and methods to create sophisticated pieces.
