my first memories of making art was a pattern i had made with a compasss and then colouring it in with coloured pencils age 8 now 68 years later still doing patterns with underlie my practice. when artwork is finished i feel a sense of completion.my influence from art school was fauvism (intense colour a vehicle for describing light/space and form).
my textile designing influences art nouveau/psychedelic/pop. all conjured up my ideas even though they are new the past coloured them. i do not want to complicate my work by the theorism to much i want the artwork to speak for itself. i have found i can communicate my particular state of mind regarding the and my life through colour/geometry and geometrics. i try to apply colours like words that shape poems, like notes that shape music. joan miro.
