work across a spectrum of ideas and materials, taking inspiration from
many sources: landscape and the natural world, literature, the art and
design of eastern cultures, other artists, and often from the materials
themselves. My approach is intuitive, with a process that often starts playfully and then becomes more serious and specific. I mainly work with oils, but also love watercolour, and have also worked with clay, glass, textiles and print."
