How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

I have been working with copper wire now for over 20 years. I love the malleability of the material and have created many pieces either into jewellery or 3D work. I have rediscovered the love of painting and use the textile skills to create collage with mono printing and acrylics.
These two disciplines have been fused together so the woven wire vessels compliment the vibrant artwork.
I enjoy painting landscapes, seascapes and floral studies and work in semi-abstraction that intensifies the natural forms. I work from home in my Mongolian yurt on a farm and hold workshops throughout the year.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

To be an artist is to observe what is around you and to explore different processes and techniques to enhance the work. We are surrounded by an array of shapes, colours and forms and it is a joy to capture these in your work

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

Mixed Media Artist

I am starting to hold workshops from my Mongolian yurt in creating a sketchbook with mono printing and acrylics and to teach weaving with wire to create jewellery or small 3D objects.
