  • Artist’s Statement

    I love to explore the alchemy of colour, through drawings and paintings, from tiny pieces through to larger works.  I work mainly in coloured pencils, acrylic paint, watercolour, and sometimes oils. I love to work in series, exploring a theme, and with a background in illustration my work often follows a narrative thread.
