My love for art has spanned my entire lifetime, with some of my earliest memories involving plain white piece of A4 paper and a few crayons. The joy such simple things can bring is something I've tried to hold onto throughout my career as an artist.
I love to experiment and explore different media and over the years of creativity my work has evolved through a number of different 'styles', with series of pure screen printing in their entirety, to acrylic, watercolour and one of my favourites, stencilling. But this year has been amazing for my creative journey.
This year I will be exhibiting in two venues. One is at the Heseltine Gallery in Middleton Cheney in May for Artweeks.
I received an ‘Highly Commended Award’ last year and this year they have offered to show my work in the gallery for Artweeks. This is such a an honour to show work in this prestigious gallery.
I will be showing work alongside other artists Rachel Cronin, Mia Parkinson and Caroline Nixon.
North Oxfordshire Artweeks May 13th to 21st
I will also be exhibiting with several other amazingly talented artists in the church with the King’s Sutton Collective. We will have tea and coffee plus a choice of delicious cakes for sale. So please come along to see a variety of work.

I like to use my instincts and intuition to explore colours and mark making. I enjoy the journey that the artwork takes as a piece of work comes together well, sometimes in the most unexpected way. I do believe there is always new ways to interpret and express an idea. It is the journey of exploration and experimentation that gives me joy in creating. I will never grow tired of this as long as I follow my creative intuitions.
Last year was such a huge milestone for me. It’s been amazing that so many positive things have happened for me. I signed up last summer to do an on-line course that changed my art and concept radically. As the course came to an end, I decided to do a series of new work using only a limited colour palette and my intuition.
That is the title of the new series, ‘INTUITION’. They have proven to be successful, and I’ve sold a few at several exhibition last year.
