Express Myself


Cornwall has been my home since 1993. Prior to that I lived in London for many years, having left South Africa in my mid-20s. In 2010 I graduated from Plymouth University with a BA (Hons) in Art History. Two years later I was introduced to the world of making art when I participated in a printmaking course with Rachael Kantaris at Newlyn School of Art. Since 2016 I have been a member of Taking Space, a group of women artists exhibiting in Cornwall.
My abstract/stylised work incorporates collage elements such as mulberry paper, plant material, fabric or silver foil. Currently I am exploring the possibilities of acrylic and alcohol inks on a variety of surfaces.
