Artist Statement - A Tree in Autumn

Last autumn, out on a walk, I looked up to watch the wind in the trees and in one tree I noticed the range of gold, yellow and rust colours in the leaves. When I did this mosaic, I wanted to show how the tree had seemed to me.

Artist Statement - Trees SOLD

I create mosaics in my garden shed which overlooks an old coal slag heap that has been reclaimed by trees and now looks beautiful. This inspired me to try and capture the diversity colour and texture of these trees in my mosaic by using broken china, beads and glass off cuts
I was influenced by Hudertwasser in my design I love the quirky shapes and lines in his paintings and buildings.

Artist Statement - Fiddlehead Fern

The design of this piece is based on the fiddlehead fern which features the spiral, one of my favourite themes. I have used mainly ceramic tiles but there is also a smattering of glass tiles and beads.

Artist Statement - Owl

The recent rebirth of this owl shape from the 70’s insired me to make my own retro bird , using plates from the same era.
