Statement

I started making mosaics in Greece, on a self taught basis, using beach pebbles and debris, mirror, and mosaic tesserae. I have learnt much more boyt classical techniques since returning to England, through following an Art & Design course at Southbank Mosaics and working alongside the other artists there, including Jo Thorpe, Maria Palmieri and Tess Hunkin, and participating in major public realm projects and small private commissions. I have also studied roman techniques with Lawrence Payne 

Biography

I started making mosaics in Greece, on a self taught basis, using beach pebbles and debris, mirror, and mosaic tesserae. I have learnt much more since returning to England, from the artists at Southbank Mosaics. I still have a lot to learn. I still like to include stones, and other found objects in my mosaics along with traditional materials.
