My work is intended to be "images to delight the eye and provoke thought, reflecting the positive in life", and includes a variety of media including collage, paint, textiles, printmaking and bookart. The images are sometimes representational sometimes abstracted, and emphasize line, form and colour. They are inspired by a wide range of sources.
The sculptural books evolved from a delight in pure form, with the play of light creating shadows and volume. I was excited by the combination of delicated detail and strength, and of simplicity and complexity - also by the surprise element created when the flat book covers opened to reveal words and colour, fracturing them with cuts, but at other times I like to emphasise the geometry and symmetry of monochrome abstract sculpture.
