Welcome to my Website



I am so fortunate to have my studio  in the garden of my home in Ledbury. The importance of space to work cannot be over emphasised for any artist – a place to think and develop ideas as well as making finished pieces. Although Life and Community feeds our art, we usually need a place that is ours alone as a retreat, as well as a workshop.  After spending time in the studio making work, we may see the world and situations differently…….a shift of focus that comes from expressing what we feel.

For many years, my paintings, collages and prints were visual memories, relating to the shifting moods and atmosphere experienced when visiting ancient buildings and sacred places in the landscape that are somehow set apart.    The paintings were made from memory, reflecting the season in which they were painted.

 

More recently my work has focused sharply on ideas around memory –  how memories are stored, linked, modified and organised.

Kilpeck panel

Stained Glass Panel completed at workshop with Nicky Hopwood. The design was inspired by Kilpeck Church and will be included in my book about the Romanesque Sculpture in Herefordshire. Hopefully the book will be published later this year.
