Although I have spent all my life in the countryside it is only now that I have started using the natural world in my work, up to now I have looked in wonder at trees and birds and animals, now I fill my work with them, not that you will recognize any particular species! I don't do realism, I stylize and use my imagination but you will still see that a bird is a bird, a tree is a tree . . .
I have been painting and drawing for most of my life,studied Graphic Design eventually and specialized in illustration. Just recently I discovered papercutting. working with just paper and a scalpel can be a trial at times but I think the end results are worth it. So far only my own abilities have held me back when it comes to the subject matter I might attempt but I\'m sure much more is possible. The human form and nature have been my favourite areas for inspiration up to now and I have even had a go at still lives in paper, I never tried when painting . . .
