Artist Statement

During these times of change, loss and re-thinking, any great projects I was contemplating have been shelved. I moved house during lockdown but now have the head-space to begin to think ideas and starting points.

Gardens have been supplying me with colour and the Aberdeenshire countryside is giving me an inspiration overload in lines and mark-making using mixed media; monochrome initially with the exciting prospect of moving into colour as summer and autumn burst through.

I lost a dear friend to MND at the height of restrictions so my grieving has been done through memories, experimenting with collage and words.
