  • Artist Statement
    I returned to making art in 2008 after many years of just thinking about it. I attended Medway Art School in Rochester, going on to study sculpture, but I didn't finish the course. By drawing regularly and going to weekend classes I kept up my interest, and visited as many exhibitions as I could when living in London. While at a pastels class in 2008 I got the opportunity to show work at the Belleberry Deli in Clockhouse BR3, sadly now gone. It was perfect for new artists, and I sold some pictures, much to my surprise. I then gave pottery a go, and found that I loved the feel of clay, making bowls and vases, jugs and useful things, but also figures, which seemed to grow by themselves. I'd been drawing figures since I was a child, copying from magazines etc, and later doing life drawing.
    After copying favourite paintings in oil and acrylic, I gained confidence in using paint, but drawing has always seemed more natural to me. My current interest is life drawing and using different media to make meaningful patterns direct from the model and their setting. I am much influenced by Matisse.
    I became a member of the local SE20 Art Group in 2012, and for the last four years have been their co-ordinator.
