I enjoy using and combining a wide range of media and approaches. My work recently has inspired by travel and family history and I am currently working on collages of Norfolk and Leicestershire churches, south London railway viaducts and ‘collections’.

I have shown widely in solo and group shows in the UK sinces graduating in the 1980s and my work is held in private and public collections worldwide.
