About my work

This project has been about the Urban landscape and the flowers and plants which flourish or struggle to survive in a manmade environment.

I have enjoyed experimenting with a large variety of mixed media, thinking about line, colour, and composition.  

For the past year I have been working at a Covid Testing Site, I find that being outside for 12 hrs per day has given me plenty of time to really look and study the weather and the nature within it.  

I am interested in how the light changes throughout the days, there have been days when we have had all four seasons in a day.

I enjoy watching the effect the light has on grey, wet, windy days, particularly on the colours of the fresh new leaves in spring.
