I am both an artist and a maker. I create work of individual character mixing diverse materials to create sophisticated pieces that combine craft elements with abstract imagery.

Colour in any form delights me. Life is saturated with it and I've always been aware of its affect on my surroundings and emotions. Playful use of colour with pattern and texture is a signature of my work which I consider to sit somewhere between sculpture and painting.

My creative practice follows the two paths of art textiles and three dimensional structure and often the two meet. Painting and design are key parts of my practice and layering imagery from this is the way I create the visual elements in my work. I want to make work that reveals something different each time you look at it and conveys a sense of play in the making.

I'm curious about structure and fascinated with the idea of making something from components. The freedom it gives to re-invent, re-assemble and change appeals to my experimental nature in looking for ways to express layering of colour pattern and texture within new structures.

I graduated with a Masters Distinction in Textiles from University for the Creative Arts and am currently Artist in Residence at UCA Farnham.
