Philosophy :

Landscape, nature, life, colour and light are at the centre of all her inspiration.
'A challenge for any artist to create images which convey atmosphere and emotion on a two dimensional surface created by hand'.

Figurative is perhaps the word to describe her style of work. Her fascination with techniques, lines using paint or ink her methods are innovative and explorative, the results are unique.
A love for printmaking is apparent, the design and tone sometimes bold or delicate are completed slowly with much consideration.

Taking a proof on the Harry Rochat press.
