I originally trained as a textile designer and worked in the Scottish knitwear industry. After a spell of ill health I returned to my home town of Bolton and decided to follow a long held dream of becoming an artist.

My work explores the possibilities of digital imaging in combination with traditional art-making techniques. I make hand printed and painted textures to use as source material for my collages, creating visual effects unachievable with either method alone

‘A Small World’ was the first digital artwork I created and it consists of 180 silhouettes of animals and humans. The backgrounds of the animal shapes are close-up images of the real fur, feathers, scales etc. of each animal and I used different kinds of fabric for the human figures.

My paintings often portray geological and meteorological phenomena in nature as I seek to illustrate some of the systems operating in the world around us, often unnoticed as we go about our daily lives.
