My inspiration stems from a lifelong interest in art and a period of illness in early 2018 which gave me the impetus to create my own work.

I focus on abstract art as I am fascinated by the interaction of shape, space and colour and the boundless possibilities this gives across various mediums.

I tend to work organically having an idea in mind but which often develops into something else as the creative process takes place. This is what I find exciting about abstract art – you never know what you will end up with and the end product is always open to interpretation by the viewer.

My main aim, whatever the medium I work in, is to create something visually pleasing and stimulating.

I also like to use experimental techniques and materials. For example I have developed “can” art which uses cut out shapes from soft drinks cans to create abstract designs on canvas and glass.
