About the artist

I love to get lost in the landscape where I live, a stone’s throw away from Higham Marshes. I relish sitting still and capturing the many moods.

When I look through my camera lens I see a collage & with my new sound recorder I can capture even more.

I am a climber and an artist, and back in my studio I recreate scenes by ripping up climbing magazines and using the rocky textures to collage.
