Having graduated from Art School in 1993, I established a business designing and making metal clocks. I use many techniques,including etching, engraving and riveting to create a range of unusual designs for both free-standing and wall clocks. These have been sold in galleries and also commissioned by several Cambridge colleges and libraries. After the birth of my first child in 2000, family life and building our house took over. Having recently returned to my art work, my focus has widened to include mixed media painting. I very much enjoy the impact and directness of working with paint (often Guage), pen, pencil and other mediums. I find that by slicing up, re-arranging and removing parts of the image, I can explore contrast, depth and pattern. I'm inspired by many things, both man-made and natural, but particularly by domestic scenes. I enjoy working to commission in peoples homes. So much of ourselves, our family and lifestyle can be captured in a particular corner of a room or view through a house.
