“Drawing is at the heart of my work. It translates easily into printmaking mostly through intaglio techniques. I love the variety and craft of printmaking. More recently I have been enjoying working in Paint.

My work is like a visual diary. I am inspired by my environment and the people I share it with. The things that grow in my allotment, fly past my window or that I find on my walks.”
