Each morning the shifting light across the moors viewed from my kitchen window picks out, not only the greens and browns but every hue of pink and indigo,lilac and ochre.
It is from this beautiful rural landscape that I draw my inspiration. I use watercolour, pastel and collage to try to express the atmospheric changes in the rich and exciting colours of my beloved Peak District.
My lifelong love of drawing and painting led me to a degree in textiles from Manchester Metropolitan University, which immersed me in the opulent texture and colours redolent of the craft. This fascination now gives me a unique vision in my chosen medium to conjure up the panoramas of the wonderful Derbyshire countryside. I try to pass on my thorough enjoyment and enthusiasm to my students.
