Welcome to my website. Thank you for taking the time to check out my work. 
 
I have decided to develop a new website that is more compatible with my art practice now. This website will focus on painting, sculpture and textiles and ongoing collaborative projects.
 
You will find the section on ongoing collaborative projects at the bottom of the welcome page.
 
 
I have also added a blog, which has headlines on this page if you click on  the headline you should be able to access the full text.
 
I hope you enjoy what you see and you will visit again!

Welcome to my website. Thank you for taking the time to check out my work.  
 
I have decided to develop a new website that is more compatible with my art practice now. This website will focus on walking painting, sculpture and textiles. 

Walking has become a  part of my art practice over the last two years. I am interested in using walking as a research tool and exploring its connections with  poetry and  weaving.

I am enjoying the process and grateful to all those artists and friends who walk and collaborate with me.
 
 If you want more detail about the walks and how these develop with connections and ideas as these emerge from the process, please visit my blog. .
 
I hope you enjoy what you see and you will visit again!
