Now living in Kendal, Cumbria, working from home and in association with Green Door Studio artists. She is very interested in exploring the printing process, especially collographs, and also in ceramics and machine embroidery.
Her main field remains painting – watercolour, gouache and oil pastel, acrylic – all fascinate her and draw her into the exploration of new approaches and techniques. She loves the wilderness areas, walking and gardening. Colour and light are important to her and provide the stimulus for many of her recent paintings. She is also drawn increasingly to more abstract expression of the landscapes and forms which have always attracted her.
