“I find inspiration in my surroundings, particularly the Derbyshire countryside and the small village which I live in, near Ashby de la Zouch. As well working with a variety of printmaking, felting and painting methods, I enjoy photography and find that the discipline of composing and taking photos helps my drawing, painting and print making endeavours. I love going from an initial ideas and sketches, to compose a picture and then moving on to paint, felt or print it. It is very satisfying to see an idea come to fruition in a frame!
