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

Love of travel and my interest in arial photography and abstract landscapes leads to an appreciation of what is around you and enjoying the simple things in life. I currently love exploring the fluidity and life of paint to represent abstract aerial landscapes.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

“Modern art = I could do that + yeah, but you didn’t”
Encouraging others to have a go and bringing a smile to faces - that is the joy art can bring.

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

I have recently achieved the time and dedicated space I need to explore my own inner creativity. I love a mixed media approach on canvas and board. I focus on colour and mark making and application of other materials in an abstract form that raise environmental issues or simply focuses on a happy place that may raise a question, a memory or a smile!

Your practice & activities include e.g workshops, teaching: 

Teaching young people anything is possible. 30 years of teaching product design. Design and technology specialist that loves the abstract and colour that promotes discussion and a change in mood.

CV & Education, relevant & leading to your artistic practice: 

My background is in 3D design completing a Design & Technology degree, including technical graphics. This lead to 30 years in education promoting design and creativity within children aged 5 to 18. With a love of photography, Menorca and the effects of colour on the mood and well-being of individuals. My abstract work currently explores the fluidity in life to create pieces that inflict memories and happiness that brings interest and interpretation over time.

Your gallery outlets/stockists: 

With only recently moved to Herefordshire, I am looking for outlets to build relationships with. This year I will be exhibiting at The Lion Ballroom, Leominster.
