The work pursues an ongoing exploration of the complexity and multiplicity of any one given moment in time and expresses personal responses to places/landscapes/relationships. These are presented as fluid and airy images anchored through the use of colour, form, line, pattern and texture. 'Actual' observations are transmuted and rearranged into paintings and collages which form an abstract pictorial language of atmosphere and depth, with a satisfying overall surface interest.
Art of the 30's and 40's (Nash, Sutherland, Heron, Agar, Clough, Frankenthaler, Matisse, Braque, Picasso). Personal life influences: childhood, motherhood, bereavement, travel, nature and celebration of life.
