I`m a Maximalist Collage Artist who paints with paper. Using mono-printed papers created with acrylic paints, hand-cut stencils and Gelli plates I can create highly coloured, textured, layered raw materials to work with.
A relate counsellor for many years, the transferable skills of deep intuitive listening and responding help me build an interactive, energetic conversation between visual elements which then evolve naturally in a quietly dynamic process.
Always more drawn to seeing `the hand of the artist` over technical precision, I love it when I find something I want to touch, turn and feel what the artist felt in a deeply personal moment of creation. This is what I seek to create, especially in my 3D collages. They are both visually exciting and immensely tactile.
