I have been painting for over 20 years, whilst combining a career in the public sector including design, education and more recently Health. I am a self taught artist and use a range of mediums in my work such as charcoal, acrylics, oils, collage and mixed media.
My interests lie in the use of art, texture and colour within the health, community and corporate setting. I have exhibited widely in the UK, both solo and group work. More recently working on the use of collage work, poetry and altered art. I am keen to explore the nature of the individuals experience and the effects of colour and texture and recycled art. I have worked extensively with the elderly with dementia and look at ways in which we can find ways for them to explore their creativity in a relaxed and un-judged environment.
As an Artist, I am keen to explore how art and creativity can be used in different settings, and how we use creative expression as a means of communication. I am very interested in colour and texture and use a variety of techniques and mediums in creating images. I enjoy the flexibility that they allow and can therefore be expressive in a number of ways.
I am a presenter on the Good News show, a weekly arts and urban gospel music show on Bang Radio 103.6fm.
