Welcome to my website - Originally from Manchester I moved to London in 1988 but have now moved back to the North and joined a thriving art community in Congleton, Cheshire. Five contemporary Artists work together as part of the Vale Artists Co-operative. I am also a member of Incubation Arts, a prolific art group based in Macclesfield. We have just procured space in a 'pop-up' gallery in the centre of Town at Mill Street.
I am a self-taught artist with no formal training. My work has evolved through various experiments with mixed media techniques, from photo transfer, acrylics/acrylic mediums, mixed water media, collage and encaustic art. I love the challenges and excitement of experimenting with different mediums, changing the style to suit the subject and the effects that I want to create. I often work with no set goal in mind and enjoy the spontineity of watching a piece evolve intuitively. This versatility gives each piece its own mystique.
I hope you enjoy the site - Please sign my guestbook.
