Introduction

Mixed media with a vengeance ! Painting in watercolour and oil, several forms of printmaking (lino, etching, monotype, screenprints) and mixed media - old documents and monotype collage papers incorpoarted into paintings and prints.

Statement

I paint and I print, and I make 'stuff,  I also collect 'stuff' which gets used in collage.  Having lived an expatriate life for the past 30+ years I  have a fabulous database of memories and ideas to draw on.  Whether it all gets put down in paint or print, or both, is what drives me each day.

I have recently started cutting and interweaving monotype prints, to form  three dimensional  'Monotype papercuts' . These are mainly to do with growth and curling plants stems.

I returned to live in West london early 2011.
