About The Artwork

One late afternoon I was driving on the Failand road heading back to Clevedon (south west UK), and the light suddenly changed. Thunder promised but a shaft of sunlight hit the field of oil seed rape in the distance. The sky reminded me of Elvis Costello’s line, “the sky was a purple bruise” The 2nd image shows the white frame i use for my curent work. Dimensions include the frame.

My work is concerned with the layering of translucent colour and form built up over time to create ethereal and symbolic imagery. I use paint, gold leaf, digital media and thread to achieve this. My original degree was in education but after 25 years of teaching I returned to the University of the West of England to complete a Masters in Multi Disciplinary Printmaking, gaining a Distinction. My work took a total change in direction, from abstraction to figurative work which embraced the concept of "divine feminine" combining the intricacies of pattern with Gothic aesthetics. I have recently retired from a 36 year teaching career and plan to paint, potter and plot constantly. Like most women artists I have created a studio at home. I live by the sea in South West England.
