I am an artist and illustrator based in South Manchester. I'm inspired by my surroundings, be it my beloved city of Manchester, other wonderful places I love to visit, or simply my garden and surrounding countryside and the wildlife within it. I create lively and contemporary artwork using collage and mixed media, often visiting charity shops to search out old books, maps and dressmakers patterns to use within my work.
The picture of each painting comes from within i.e. my heart and soul which are my best guides. The manner of painting is abstract; a collection of colors, shaped by the lines which consequently creates a unique image. Each person perceives my painting differently. You see my painting and the image in my painting depending on your current perception.
