I am an artist, stylist, maker and collector with many interests based in a beautiful rural corner of Shropshire and enjoy hunting for hidden treasure at local markets, auctions and fairs. I have always found my inspiration in time worn surfaces and love to gather and re-love the discarded, the overlooked or the lost. I try to re-cycle, up- cycle or find a new angle from which to re- appreciate the time worn, the pretty ugly and the temporarily uncool. Even relatively recent eras have left us a legacy of ephemera with huge nostalgic appeal - it’s fun to research and understand the history of our surroundings and by adopting a vintage object or crafting something for ourselves we are enriching our lives as well as saving a little bit of the planet.
I exhibit and sell my artwork at venues locally. A selection of my current orginal artwork and affordable prints can be be viewed by clicking on my studio.
I also run "Painting Playschool" workshops in Shropshire. Award yourself some creative “ me” time, leave your inhibitions at home and just have a go- who knows what talents you may unleash! We learn together and from each other.
