I am an Artist & Poet
based in ST AUSTELL, CORNWALL
Art and poetry for me are inextricably linked because they come from the same place: my life’s experiences and the world around me.
The beauty, violence, ugliness, vulnerable fragility, perfection and imperfection, along with the powerful spiritual need
to survive against all odds.
“It’s about capturing the unseen;
the unconscious coming into consciousness,
that process is an exhilarating and magical mirroring
of one’s soul through texture and colour.”
"A PAINTER OF PURE INSTINCT..
who often uses her hands to create paintings of extremely
rich texture & vibrant dynamism.
Her canvases are pure examples of
gestural art and exude
liveliness and the force of nature itself"
- Art Critic, Karen Lappon, international confederation of Art Critics, 2016
