With land and seascape forming the backdrop, her experimentation with paint leads her to explore the relationship between a painterly surface and the illusion of space, with what she describes as “veils and layers”. Using a wide variety of materials, such as oil, wax, collage, spray paints, oil pastels, she creates atmospheric artworks of extraordinary beauty. She loves to draw outside in the landscape – “sitting by the sea as the light fades or fighting the wind on a fellside”.
Painted in the Canadian Rockies, the Himalayas in Nepal, the Rift Valley in Kenya and all over Europe as well as in Scotland, Cornwall and the Lakes.
She has a first class honours degree in art and has won several prizes. She holds prestigious residencies including one at the University of York where she lives and paints.
