I trained in Falmouth for my foundation course and then Manchester for my degree in printed textiles. I trained as an art teacher and taught in Stockport and then returned home to Cornwall where, 20 years on, I continue to teach.
It was on my degree that I discovered a love of Japanese art. I delighted in the bold use of colour, the elegance and simplicity of line and the composition & views of nature that were exciting and different to those I had previously encountered.
My work has evolved to fuse what I see and love of the Cornish landscape and the style and formats of Japanese Ukiyo-e prints. Also, more recently I have introduced the art of Gyotaku – Monoprinting with real fish! (‘Gyo’ = fish, ‘taku’ = impression or rubbing in Japanese).
I hope you enjoy my website and gallery.
Find me at events and exhibitions in the South West, Cornwall And Devon where I will be selling and promoting my work.
