Artist's StatementThe art I make is all about my local area, the East Anglian Fens, the wildlife, the folklore, the history and how we connect with it. I don’t think we celebrate this area enough. It’s completely unique in this country and I have grown to love its subtle beauty. For me the magic is in the whole experience, the sound of the wind in the reeds and the different bird calls as well as the play of light and the sound of the water. There is a wealth of history and folklore here that fuels my creativity.
I studied BA Fine Art Painting at University of Wales Institute Cardiff. After graduating I practiced as an artist for 3 years, after which I worked in design for 10 years before taking a career break to raise my children. I grew up half in urban Kent and lived in rural Oxfordshire as a teenager before spending a few years in Southampton. I now live and practice in Ely, Cambridgeshire.
