I am a self-taught mosaicist, working from a garden studio in Stoke Gabriel, Devon.
My work is about movement and flow. I create pieces using contrasting materials, with different textures and scale, from large glass shards to tiny tesserae. I like to use matt porcelain tiles which I cut to create my signature look and complement these with the rich colour and reflective qualities of glass.
I prefer the immediacy and speed of starting with a single line drawing straight onto the substrate then to develop the work as it goes along, so I have no firm idea how each piece will turn out until the final tessera is laid.
This can be exciting and is completely addictive. I am totally absorbed by the process and get lost in a calm inner world.
