My art is full of energy and colour using mixed media. I like to be excited about what I am doing therefore the subject matter is important to me. Subjects that have interested me in the past have been barristers, lifesavers, ballet dancers, and expressions of still life with collage. My work can be quirky and offbeat, hence the mice this year. I am continually exploring. The size of my work generally can vary from medium to large pieces.
