Original watercolour and collage material on high quality watercolour paper, mounted in a contemporary white box frame behind glass.
'Shouting Loudly at Each Other' recently won the St Cuthberts Mill prize for contemporary watercolour at The Royal Watercolour Society, Bankside Gallery. My work is very much influenced by everyday visual sources such as shopping lists, children's drawings, train tickets and wall paper. An event in the day may trigger a painting, this might be a conversation or an interaction which creates an emotional reaction.
