I began painting and exhibiting my work in the 1980s, firstly in Art Space in Liverpool with some success, giving me the confidence to exhibit throughout the north-west and Wales. I initially started working with gouache but found the results rather flat and solid, although on some occasions it can be quite useful.
I am influenced by the colour and form of flowers and the natural world and find watercolour and pastels most sympathetic to the paintings I create while oils and acrylics give much more freedom to make bold contemporary pieces on canvas, incorporating texture and form into each individual piece of work.
Whilst running art workshops I was asked by one of my students to teach painting on silk, which opened up a whole new exciting medium to explore. Researching methods and techniques enabled me to master this wonderful art form and give me my own unique signature style.
