I use watercolour, mixed media and textiles to create work inspired by the natural forms of local coasts and gardens.
Cowal is a wonderful area to live and work in, surrounded by coast, woods and gardens. I work with organic shapes and enjoy developing work from the wonderful pebbles, seaweed and other natural forms discovered on local beaches. I also create work in response to plants and gardens a theme I have returned to many times over the years.
Much of my work is created by building up layers. The translucency of watercolour is perfect for this, enabling me to work with overlapping colours, shapes and marks. Mixed media work is often developed using layers of cut paper, pen, ink and paint. When working with textiles, translucent fabric is stitched, dyed and painted before combining multiple layers.
