Her abstract paintings with fresh quirky forms and bold colour combinations are created with oil paint on canvas - that fundamentally explore the language of colour and the phyisicality of materials and process of painting itself.
"My paintings are often created intuitively, without a clear idea of how the finished work will look. Ranging from fresh minimal images to more complex 'landscapes' of paint that are built up slowly over many months. Inspiration is found in the visual world around me, from the stunning cornish landscape , to anything that catches my eye from scraps of fabric or marks on the pavement."
