The natural environment and the knowledge that 

nothing stays still are the predominant and recurring themes 

and inspiration for my work


 So, I explore the symbiotic
relationship we have with our environment using different scales

and a range of materials to establish a sense of context within time

and space. By mixing the scale in which I work - for example, large paintings, and small sculpures - I enjoy creating a sense of presence and vulnerability.

My fascination with landscape can be traced to early
childhood memories of the fens surrounding Cambridge and the

beauty of the city’s architecture.

Later, moving from East Anglia to West Dorset, I discovered very
different patterns, contours and boundaries.

After studying Fine Art (sculpture) at Kingston-upon-Thames,  

I returned to Dorset and a career in Education which
led me to Dorchester, and then to the Isle of Purbeck,

where I live and work today.




In addition to creating and showing my own work, I also co-run

Mindfulness and Creativity Reteats in various venues around Dorset.
