About

I am proud to define myself as a “jack of all trades” designer/ maker and fine artist. I am forever excited by my home dale of Nidderdale and the landscape, flora and fauna of The Yorkshire Dales generally. Being an artist and an Outdoor Education teacher, I consider and revere the environment in different ways, and am drawn to specific locations that hold a special association and knowledge for me, usually acquired through repeated experience.

About my work

I have drawn flowers forever. It took a long time to dare to move to landscapes as it was all so big, but last year I so enjoyed illustrating local haunts, favourite places, that just resonate. And now I’m putting trees into focus – because they are structural, because they inhabit my memory, my sense of place; because they have such life and presence. I have depicted trees that are on my personal local map. There are many standing alone; or grouped and gathered in a wood, but all in my obsessive photographic bank. It’s so wonderful to be pulled about by the land I pass through.
I like having a go, I like upcycling. I like hybrid print- making – which is combining print techniques together. I often create similar but unique pieces utilising a common theme. I love experimenting with colours, papers and fabrics. I will always want to explore.
