I like to think my work has a very positive happy feel, almost a bit naive in places, with attention to details being important, maybe the mapmaker in me has decided not to take a holiday! I have chosen to hand-cut contrasting card/paper and layering vibrant fabrics. A scalpel, scissors and an array of textiles are mostly all I need, as I like the extra challenge of not using paint.
I feel inspired by a variety of subjects and nothing is off limit, yet! I am just as comfortable illustrating landscapes, architecture or iron roof structures as I am with flowers, fruits and green plants.
You can see both my French roots and recently much more of my adopted country reflected in my work. I have a fabulous studio amongst the creative community of Banks Mill in Derby.
