painting/mixed media
My work aims to capture a place and its essence. Effortless but sensitive use of line, mark making and colour with an expressive quality.

I work in mixed media and collage, capturing moments, events and places visited, with a ‘fresh and spontaneous approach’.
Much of my work is drawn from life and my own photographs, drawing with a continous line, with shapes and colours layered over until i feel I am complete. I enjoy putting down colours, scenes and atmospheres on paper or board from anything that inspires me,often the quaint streets of Cambridge and other cities, but also the beautiful local landscape. My work speaks of the joy of things. I teach art to adults and children in my conservatory. These are structured informal lessons exploring drawing and paint. Varied projects develping ideas and exploring materials and processes rather  than getting too concerned about specific techniques.
