I try to capture the vitality of life in my work, often focusing on the detail of what I observe. I draw using in any media that the subject matter suggests and take photos as visual notes. My current interest is collagraphy which can take the form of a relief print or an intaglio print and I find that my ideas develop as I experiment using different techniques.
I have a lifelong interest in growing and drawing flowers and plants and regularly attend Life Drawing sessions. I have recently been motivated by observations made when hiking in the dramatic landscape of Canyonlands and Arches National Parks in Utah, USA.
I feel that all my work is an experimental part of an over all learning experience and I take every opportunity to develop my skills using pastels, some watercolour and print.
