Creative Practice

I have a love of trees, they are my sentinels of time, their connection with the past and how the ancients viewed them as entities has intrigued me for so long. The beauty of their autumn colours, how they burst into life after the cold stark winter. I take their photographs into screen print, using layers, changing colour and orientation to create stunning images and designs. I worked in black and white for a long time but at the end of my degree I moved spectacularly into colour and paint. My final submission was of the emotional connections of family depicted through the connectivity of trees. Currently I’m putting together, a business proposal so I can help others get in touch with their artistic side though nature. 

We need to look after our green spaces so as not to lose our inspiration as artists or everything will just become grey.
