A love of intricate detail, patterning, and the graphic quality of drawing have always been evident in my artwork. Several years ago I rediscovered pen-and-ink drawing, this time using structured patterns. I have an affinity for small objects, sparkle, and unusual effects. All this is present in my current mixed media work.
My imagery springs from what I see in the shapes and lines on my paper. Two years ago I was introduced to eco-dyeing and have found it most inspiring. I now eco-dye my own papers and then see what I can find in the marks on them. Frequent subjects are trees, leaves, houses, buildings, skies and celestial bodies.
