About 

 

I live in Oxford and have a two storey Victorian paintshop studio in my garden. I’m a lover of colour, old books- (for their old cloth covers and interesting fly sheets) and vintage bits and bobs. I’ve moved away from purely painting to using painted papers and book covers in my work recently. I love the immediacy of painting the papers and then having a whole spectrum of colours to work with. Sometimes the most successful pieces come from offcuts that I pair up with a sharply cut semi circle and a touch of neon. I have two kids, a dog and a husband and a full sized replica ET in my life. I studied back in the early nineties, I was represented by CCA galleries between 1997-2001 and worked as a freelance card designer for two oxford companies for over 20 years. I designed in the day and painted by night!

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork   

 

I have a vast stack of painted papers and old books that I use to make my collage pieces. I particularly love using touches of neon pink and other intensely coloured pieces against the contrast of yellowing book pages. Circles and semi circles feature heavily, I’m drawn to their shapes and the textures. Colour and form collide to create little structures, the painted papers add depth.
