“A down-to-earth approach to life and her art takes her on flights of fancy, which evoke folk cultures, traditions and mythology with an abandon which ignores all barriers. Sometimes figurative, sometimes wholly abstract she has an unerring faith in her feeling for her materials. Confidence pours from her work and with it a power and sophistication that brings to it an almost religious sensation of ancient wisdom revisited. Her work is inevitably influenced by her visits to Japan and India but more as someone who would use that influence to reaffirm her own strengths. That is her originality” - Ralph Steadman
Take the fear out of using a sketchbook. Creative ways of exploring developing ideas through mixed media including dyeing and staining pages, drawing with found objects, stitching and layering to open up the thought processes to the creation of your own work.
A sketchbook started with developing your own ideas, coloured pages reflecting your own journey and interest. This collage approach is a means for you to achieve great confidence in composition, colour, design and your own drawing and mark making skills in an imaginative way.
