I have been painting for over thirty years and on moving to South Norfolk in 1992 I spent some time in arts administration including two years of owning my own art gallery. In 2000 I decided to concentrate on my own arts practice and spent two years at Norwich City College to further my education in art and design. In 2015 I moved to the Norfolk Broads and initially had a studio overlooking Womack Water. Subsequently I had a studio built in the garden at home.

I am currently concentrating on original collages and monoprinting. The collages are made from original monoprints, other printed material, newspapers and sometimes textile fragments. I make the acrylic monoprints in batches without any idea of what they may be used for. Some (not very many) are kept intact to be framed. Others are cut or torn in a random or pre-defined way and reassembled to form an image, which is generally semi-abstract. The composition or subject matter are very often undefined at the beginning but arise organically, as I work with various prints and papers. The process is quite time consuming and quite often I spend some time searching for the perfect piece of paper to finish the collage.
