''Our houses contain hundreds of objects both useful and useless. The bag is not an object but a construction destined to accommodate a life''. Or is it? Shape has always played an important part in my work and with a strong sense of sculptural form and line. I have designed and made a range of hand stitched Handbags in Leather, which can accommodate a life but also be a stylish and elegant object.

Following on from last year’s body of work I have for the last few months continued to explore the themes of water concealment. This has been through experimentation with photographing different water scenes, but mainly the water’s surface, where the light hits and often blinds us from seeing what’s really there. As a result these images have taken on a more abstract form as the colours and focus are more limited, these images are not manipulated in anyway.

Paintings and prints draw on a wide range of subject matter an interest in colour, luminosity, mood and atmosphere. Recent work involves orchids and shadows some of which have a timeless quality. Some of the work exhibited can evoke more complex ideas. The paintings aim to have a sustained aesthetic resonance which will last the test of time and which can be enjoyed and appreciated by anyone.
