I have always loved to draw, paint and create since being very young. After years as a graphic designer, redundancy allowed me to step off the mainstream treadmill and open up new opportunities to explore more as a creative artist as well as care for my mother. Landscapes are the ultimate inspiration for me, I’m fascinated by natural pattern formations, structures, textures and colours. My current projects include paintings and hand crafted rag rug wall hangings that reflect all these aspects. My inside working space is exremely limited so I create outdoors whenever possible. I loathe landfill so enjoy finding new ways of combining my love of up-cycling with that of mixed media painting and other craft forms.
