I enjoy teaching my mixed media, collage and drawing methods with other artists and beginner artists. I find it incredibly rewarding and the classes are dynamic and seriously fun! Please contact me to get more details.
My art practise is focused on drawing and collage on paper, utilizing available resources in an instinctive and driven way.
I draw out and about capturing the moment and then collage in my studio afterwards using the marks I made from the energy beforehand. I use tearing, cutting, gluing and stapling to make the work. I deconstruct and construct quickly and restlessly but over a long period of time, putting away or seeing it in a new light somehow. I am searching for the unexpected, the narrative, the quirky...
I am concerned with the edge, all sides, the weight and the texture of the papers I use. I use paper from a wide range of places, from mundane packaging material to specially imported handmade papers.
I am endeavouring to communicate aliveness, spirit and opportunity in my art.
I love collaborating with other artists whilst spending time in outdoors in natural environments being in the energy of the place.
