I enjoy working in a variety of media, but mainly painting/drawing (including collage and mixed media), ceramic sculpture, and needle felted animals. Click on an image to find out more about the medium and see more examples.!

Needle Felted Animals
I create art because it is an undeniable part of me and has been for as long as I can remember. It’s an urge to express myself, to create a small part of the world that’s the way I would like it to be. And it’s utterly magical – to begin with an idea and grab pencil and paper, or wool fiber and wire, or clay, or paints and a canvas and bring an expression of that thought into being, adding something to the world that wasn’t there before.
I work in several media, some 2D and others 3D, and have been accused of lacking focus. But actually my focus is in my choice of subject which is, with rare exception, animals.
Animals are as great a source of joy to me as creating art. The fundamental truth I strive to express with my art is that animals are emotional, sentient beings deserving of our respect and love. They, and we, are equals.
