Item Special Note

All my work is strongly influenced by whimsical sea life, our enchanted forests and wild marshes. Moved by the natural world, I delight in combining a potpourri of organic shapes with whimsical colour schemes, to create enchanted imagery. Experimenting in a wide variety of mediums has also fueled my creative endeavours. I work in mixed media: collage with my hand-dyed papers, watercolour, pastel, molding with plaster and more recently eco- printing. Whether researching new projects for my students art lessons or collecting resources for my own experimentation, I thrive in learning new ways of expressing myself through the visual arts and naming my visual work with extracts from my poetry. It brings me joy!
