I seem to be addicted to the visual, the perceived colours of the roadway against the verges, the light on a figure or face, the line of a hand, arm or body distorted by motion.
In addition to these experiences there are those created by visual media themselves, the
quality of drawn lines, the fluidity of paint, the shape and texture of a three dimensional work, and many other elements.
I do not want a carefully controlled image. I want to be surprised by what has happened in the way that a toddler is surprised and delighted by the marks it has been able to make. I would like the viewer to use her/his own experience and imagination to enjoy the marks.

I have made drawings and paintings from infancy and attended Lowestoft Art School at eighteen. I took up printmaking during a degree course at UEA. As a member of Breckland Artists and Artworks, I regularly exhibit in their shows, and have work in Mandells Gallery in Norwich. My work has been sold from London to Newcastle, widely in East Anglia, and in major open exhibitions such as Discerning Eye, the Eastern Open (a prizewinner), Art for Cure, and the Castle EAAF biennial exhibitions in Norwich. My work has travelled to Europe, America and Canada.
