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.” 

Merry Go Round - oil painting.jpg

"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
