I have always dabbled in the arts in one way or another; the latest incarnation originating from a mental refuge from the turmoils of our times. (and I tidied my art space 😉 )
My work combines graphic imagery
embellished with craft such as embroidery and weaving.
I love colour and ornamentation, and I aim to present beauty and inspire optimism for a more positive world; where man and nature can co-exist in a more mutually beneficial capacity.
The addition of craft initially pays homage to the masterful, yet humble, practical skills of my family. Both my parents were great makers and were far more practical with their skills.
I’m also increasingly drawn to the tangible nature of the handmade, whilst the world has been fighting an “invisible” enemy, and the art world is being drawn towards the virtual and artificial.
