About my work

   
 

My childhood was spent with the sound of the sea on pebbles: the soothing waves rolling on the stones and then that reluctant dragging of the pebbles back out by the tide. I enjoy these sounds again now that I have recently returned to East Devon after many years abroad. I continue to be captivated by the landscape and coastline of the area. Stones with their endless variety of shape and colour have always been of significance to me, a symbol of place. I collect them wherever I go.

Much of my work is mixed media and reflects the layers and textures of the landscape. Layering is the way I physically work with my materials allowing surfaces to reveal themselves and establish their own depth. My art is an attempt to interpret and make sense of the complexity of landscape. It does not represent a particular place, more a feeling of being in and engaging with landscape in its many forms.
