Profile

Paintings

My paintings are an expression of my inner world and are a direct narrative of my life. I have for a long time been creating paintings with the aim of transporting the viewer into their own inner reflections, offering a state of calmness and introspection.

My paintings have been described as ‘lyrical’, ‘beautiful’, ‘calming’ and ‘poetic’ and I am often asked about their unique style. The process of creating a painting is spontaneous and playful. Often I begin a new work without knowing what will emerge. I slowly build up a picture, applying thin washes of oil paint then rub them away. I am very excited and passionate about the physical act of painting. I love to see how the painting will take on a life of its own and what might emerge by pure accident.

Textile Work

The textile art works are reminiscent of childhood play when I would spend hours dressing paper dolls. They are made using a sewing machine, hand sewing, collage and embroidery, creating intricate and captivating portraits of women.  Each portrait portrays feelings of empowerment and beauty, each with their own individual personality.

I offer private lessons in my studio at home, teaching people to make their very own textile artwork.  Please contact me if interested via my contact page.
