I am an artist working in Derbyshire, UK. My work usually integrates different media, such as collage (using a variety of found material) acrylics, graphite and inks. The pieces are abstract and explore the tensions between a free, spontaneous approach and a very controlled and delicate execution. Each piece begins with experimentation and searching and moves through to a controlled refinement through this process. I also work in 3-D, constructing assemblages from found and reshaped objects. I have also created sound installations multi-media performances.
I have exhibited widely throughout the UK, New York and in Europe. I have been the recipient of 4 Arts Council England awards.
