I have spent many years working in the arts, teaching a variety of art media whilst developing my own work.
I use mixed media: found and salvaged materials, vintage tiles and my own handmade ceramic pieces as a starting point for my landscape and miniature pieces and combine these materials with industrial and domestic ceramic tile as blocks of colour to create a rich multi textured surface

My inspiration is in the landscape, and by notions of what remains from ancient history and archaeology.
Compositions are abstracted, flattened, suggesting distance,  seen from above or as though a section of landscape above and below the visible surface was glimpsed through a viewfinder.
