Artist Statement

I am a Derbyshire-born artist and have returned to the county on my retirement. I studied at Chesterfield College of Art and Leeds University and have exhibited at many venues across the country.

I work with collage and found objects to create intricate and ornate images, influenced by Victorian insect collections, shrines and reliquaries and cabinets of curiosity.

I have always been a collector and hoarder and the theme of my work seems to be making order out of chaos. I like putting disparate objects together, to make images that tell a story.

My work involves building up many layers of found and made objects and cut-out collage to make complex and visually intriguing 3D images. The finished article has a strong narrative content and a sly humour which combines many different elements within a theme and is pictorially dense, each work having many elements to hold the gaze and interest of the observer.
