A word from the artist...
  I was born in Canada and raised in its wide open spaces by the shores of the Great Lakes. Therefore I’m used to being near large bodies of water (albeit freshwater) and limestone quarries, though moving to Weymouth in South Dorset has still been a revelation. Having now lived here for more than a decade, I can reflect on how my life has been changed and how my art has evolved...
Lakes replaced by sea, many friends and much of my family now at a great distance but new friendships and creative networks being established on this side of ‘the pond’.

   My art degree seems far less important these days than my school-of-life education, as running my own small business, particularly through a long recession has been extremely challenging.
When studying, I majored in Printmaking (specialising in photo/lithographic processes) but, as previously, I enjoy working in almost any medium. Often I will combine media within a piece to enrich it and frequently switch from one focal medium to another to keep myself from getting either too bored or too fixated.

  Inspiration usually comes from unexpected or rarified things – moments of light, something rusty, interesting people, world events, beachcombing finds, exceptional looking produce, changes in the weather, a striking image or a particularly absorbing book, poem or article – almost anything.
