For me visual connection is a key response to life and goes back to early childhood; art represents a simple yet profound compulsion in human life – to express. I enjoy versatility in this and honing my response to the initial inspiration often dictates the choice of medium. I often work with unusual viewpoints, overlooked details and the human trace or history behind the subject – it interests me that I can be having a new response to something that pre-dates me and will still be there long after I am gone. My work includes still life, figurative, landscape and abstract pieces. More recently I have taken up mosaic art and enjoy making contemporary and traditional mosaics. Since 2012 I have been a Fellow of Digswell Arts and work in my studio at the Fenners Building in Letchworth.
