Paintings and printmaking

I spend lots of time juggling my lovely family, teaching commitments, seeing friends and doing chores, with doing, making and creating.  Now and again, I still find time to paint, and here are some of my favourites (detailed prints and abstract paintings).

Love doing collagraph prints!

Drawing - let's keep it alive please!

I love my life as an artist and designer.  I get inspired by all sorts of weird and wonderful things and just want to go on exploring ideas forever!  After travelling, walking, talking and looking, my sketchbooks are the place where I deposit all those nuggets of ideas, and some will make their way into a new design or a painting, print or drawing.  I've put some of those pages together for you to see part of the journey from ideas to realisation.  Drawings first - hope you like them!
