I work with paint, stitch and collage to create contemporary mixed media originals. My work is usually based on coastal landscapes or floral motifs with close links to the local area. I have recently taken a break from my career as a teacher of Art & Design in order to stay at home with my young son - this has given me the flexibility to focus more on my own creative practice.
My passion for capturing landscapes in paint started as a child through holidays in Cornwall. As I have explored new places my style has developed to incorporate free machine stitching and collage techniques. Since making the move South I have enjoyed finding new locations to capture and the South Coast now features heavily in my work.
I am looking for a venue to showcase my work during Artists Open Houses (and also throughout the year) and I'm flexible as to location within Brighton.
