Although I have been a graphic designer for over a decade, I've been an artist all my life. My art and design inform each other, but it is when making my art that I can be free to experiment and indulge my natural curiosity, push boundaries and experiment wildly.
As I create art it helps me to connect with the natural world that I feel isolated from through my indoor, sedentary, modern lifestyle. I feel a sense of belonging and peace when I’m making art. Giving my artist self permission to explore of course comes with its challenges, but as I get older, I am learning to be more free to make mistakes, and reap the rewards which lie in the process of mark making itself.
I'm delighted to have been nominated a finalist in the Kent Creative Awards 2017 for my sculptures and diorama work based around fungi and themes of my own artistic rebirth and reconnection with nature. You can visit a gallery with related work here.
