  • About

    I have had a passion for painting and sculpture since childhood. I'm always excited by the opportunity to portray a subject in an unpredictable way. My current quirky females, animal figures and also luminaries often incorporate a steampunk/android theme, a humorous twist and sometimes a little humour.

    Each of my sculptures are 'one off' unique pieces entirely handcrafted by myself using ideas plucked from my quirky and fertile imagination. Most pieces are hand built using the coiling or slabbing techniques.

    My paintings have been created using pastels and acrylic paint to produce my own quirky interpretation of various characters from Alice in Wonderland consisting of large original paintings and limited edition giclee prints.

    I also create embossed, pierced and sculpted tea light holders made from fine earthenware or translucent porcelain giving off a cosy, atmospheric glow. My pierced “lady-lamps” are inspired by the female form, my humorous animals by my desire to hopefully raise a smile from the viewer.

     

    I am an experienced tutor with more than 20 year experience working with ages from 5 to 95 years having worked in nurseries, schools. colleges and care homes. I enjoy teaching more than I had ever imagined I would. Many students have discovered how relaxing and theraputic art can be. I hold a teaching certificate and often run beginner/intermediate level workshops in my studio in Worcester.
