At the moment I create landscape collages using my discarded paintings and prints

I used to be a secondary School Art teacher, but after 16 years I left to open an Art Gallery in Doncaster. The gallery ran exhibitions and classes in life drawing, textiles, and painting. It was successful, but when the lease ran out I decided to continue my classes at home. This continued for a while, but I just concentrate on my own artwork now that I have retired. I am never really satisfied with the work I produce, and I am constantly striving to improve. In 2020 I appeared on Landscape Artist of the year where I was shortlisted for my collage of the lake and music temple at West Wycombe Park.

My landscapes are mostly created in the same way each time. 

I always begin by taking photos in places which inspire me. I take a lot of photos, then at home I select one with the best composition.

I initially work on several large pieces of paper, creating expressive marks and colours using a variety of media and techniques, as a response to the photo, or, more recently, I produce collagraphs and mono prints in response. I like to decide on a colour scheme at the beginning which will convey a mood or atmosphere. 

I draw out the main outline of the composition, and select suitable areas from all the preliminary papers I’ve created. I cut or tear the pieces and glue them down, adding shading or highlights to create depth and solidity.

My particular interest is rocks and water. Having studied geology a few years ago, I find that I am still drawn to rocks and boulders. Their colours, textures, smell and feel excite me, but also their composition, and the fact that they are millions of years old.

I am constantly seeking new inspiration and I am hoping to expand on the range of techniques that I use in the future.

I have exhibited in countless places around the country, in solo and Open art exhibitions.

I am currently exhibiting at Print Imperials sic in Doncaster
