In my paintings I explore different materials and surfaces, using resist, collage, scratching, acrylics, pastel, inks, oil, lino cuts, etching and book making. I created a large body of work based on 2 stays on Rathlin Island, which was exhibited at the Beldam Gallery, Brunel University. I am continuing to explore other islands – Coll, Skomer, Ramsey, Scolt Head, Orkney and the Ardnamurchan and Knoydart peninsulars. A year ago I spent a month’s residency on Shetland, which has led to a series of paintings and a large book which unfolds from inside a larchwood box and can be hung on the wall. I was involved in a project with writer Shirley Toulson and bookmaker Ama Bolton. We made a pilgrimage to the places C19th landscape painter Samuel Palmer painted in North Wales and The South West. Two artist’s books and a series of paintings were exhibited to mark the bicentenary of Palmer’s birth and included in the Ovada Gallery, (Oxford) exhibition: Quest – Artist as Pilgrim. In 2006 I was part of a National Trust art project at Chastleton House. In 2007 I was one of 3 artists to respond visually to music, composed to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Oxfordshire Artweeks. In 2010 I worked on a personal exploration of Alzheimer’s disease using imagery from my mother’s nursing home garden. This work includes a book, which was exhibited at an international dementia conference in London.
