Woodcut prints have been my main medium for at least the last ten years and I will have plenty to show this year. However my work evolves over the years depending on places visited, the natural world that inspires me and the love of experimenting with colour. During lockdown I spent a lot of time in the garden and as a result I dug up many bramble roots. I decided to draw them and they took on a life of their own. I have also been enjoying using restricted colours in watercolour washes for more abstract designs.
I have always had a love of art, taking A level at school but a career in nursing and midwifery took me on a different route. Marriage and three children followed but art continued to inspire me and various courses kept me involved and I joined local art groups. I was elected a member of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists (RBSA) in 2014 and have exhibited with them ever since, also giving woodcut workshops there.
I am member of the Oxford Printmakers Cooperative (OPC) and the Association of Midland Artists (AMA)
