Painting & Printmaking

About her work - ‘I love the initial spark and excitement of selecting colours on starting a painting. Textures and colours are often inspired by aged and worn surfaces. There is a feeling of time, which develops in my work to a building up and scraping back of paint. A certain ‘settling in’ takes place, often revealing previous marks and colours.’
The paintings have a unique, rich, surface quality, and bold use of colour.
