Artist Profile

"My creativity comes alive when I see a new pattern of colour. It could be a mosaic from Ancient Greece, an American quilt or simply a piece of fabric on a market stall. However, the biggest influence on my work has to be Nature. Every day when I walk my dog along the coast path I see ready-made compositions, patterns and colour variations. Nature ask's nothing except our connection to it's wonder and being. 

A journalist once wrote of me: "Like the poet William Blake she sees a world in a grain of sand, and heaven in a wild flower". Nature is truly my inspiration"
