I particularly enjoy collage, often including bits of map and local newspaper to give my pictures a sense of place. I also paint with acrylics on canvas. My art is experimental and my ideas come from my imagination. I have been greatly inspired by India in particular, along with other places.
I do not go out with a sketchbook. I look and consider and take numerous photos for inspiration but never to copy from. I do lots of commissioned work but never slavish copies of anything; they are my interpretation of the subject matter and sometimes quite quirky! I have had no formal training but have attended workshops, for learning specific techniques.
