Creating large semi abstract paintings in acrylic, pen and ink, I paint instinctively and I am inspired by the natural world, drawing upon my surroundings of the Wiltshire countryside and a love of the Devon coast line. From a starting point of chaotic abstract marks I work with my paintings to eventually create a scene of solitude. Trying not to think too hard about the end painting I constantly remove and add brush strokes, my paintings are experimental and can often change direction. I love creating colour pallets, they are frequently muted but my love for strong colours leads me to literally throw in bright contrasting colours. Formally trained in Illustration I have a BA hons from the University of Humberside, I now live in a small village in Wiltshire with my husband and three children.
