Mixed Media Artist
After many years of developing artwork as part of my teaching career, I am now producing my own work. I am a mixed media artist, originally from Liverpool now living and working in Burscough Lancashire.
I love to give new life to unwanted materials and often use reclaimed music manuscripts, discarded books and maps in my work. I use drawing, collage, print, acrylic, watercolour, papier mache, pencil and pen in my mixed media pieces and I also
enjoy “just” pencil.
I have produced a lot of work during the lockdowns (much of it unfinished!).
Initially, inspired by the artist Tom Croft who instigated the fantastic Portraits for NHS heroes (#portraitsfonhsheroes) I have made portraits of NHS workers, family members and people in the media. I have also made work relating to the everyday objects we have at home and drawings and paintings of local landscapes using photography as a source material. Music is important to me
and as well as using the manuscripts, I make pieces illustrating favourite and memorable songs. Sometimes I can “see” the colours in the songs and include them in my work.
I run drawing and mixed media workshops online and in-person. Most recently with the Ainsdale Discovery Centre as part of the Back From the Brink, Gems in the Dunes project.
I have exhibited my work in local exhibitions at SCA and The Atkinson in Southport.
