I use my art as therapy to help me overcome having agoraphobia for the last 22 years, and cope with living with M.E. for 32 years.
Over time my art has evolved from painting (figurative, architectural scenes to abstract, geometric patterns based on personal thoughts and messages), through digital art, to sculptural work. All done to perfection. Being a perfectionist, I have a fascination in straight lines and geometric shapes. While my life hasn’t been ‘perfect’ I try to make everything I create as flawless as possible.
As I recover from the agoraphobia and my world expands I’m able to travel more. As a result my work has moved in a new direction – environmental art. For my last project, Grow An Exhibition, I grew flax plants, processed and made them into handmade paper which was then turned into artworks.
I’m now working on Little Forest Land Art, a new project with fellow creative Jan Griffiths, and others, on land surrounding her studio in the Hampshire countryside.
