I am a mixed media artist and I take the inspiration for my work from a passion ignited by the landscape in which I run and cycle. The tranquillity of the countryside opens my eyes to the beauty, joy and freedom of nature. Ephemeral changes in light, subtle shadows and blocks of colour captivate me and I feel an unspoken energy. This feeling of well-being drives my creativity to draw,
paint and stitch, embedding the emotional links felt as I journey
through the landscape. I compose 2D images of my journeys capturing the landscape by using an eclectic mix of textiles, paper, paint and stitchery. The use of this broad range of media invites the viewer to experience my portrayal of the changing elements of the Peak District and wild places of Scotland and Ireland.
