  ARTIST STATEMENT
______________

 
    Being creative is one of the greatest joys in my life.

I am inspired by nature (especially wild flowers and woodlands) and have a whimsical imagination, which often results in creations that are a delight for children and/or the child that is in all of us.

I express my talents in two formats - painting and fibres. In either case, the essence of my work is in the design. I like flowing lines, colour combinations that are perfect to my eye, clearly defined outlines, a variety of textures and paying meticulous attention to detail.

My paintings are mostly realistic but usually somewhat stylised in a way that most people find unique. I use oils, acrylics, watercolours and pen & ink. I am well known for producing charming origial watercolour miniatures from photographs of clients' favourite subjects (personalized gifts for the people that already have everything).

My fibre creations are usually knitted or woven, using combinations of my own hand-spun variegated silk, wool, cotton, synthetics, lace, ribbon and other embellishments.

Art brings all of my senses alive and I like to think that that is evident in the end result of everything I produce.
