As an artist I enjoy working from real life objects and natural forms. Flowers are known for being delicate yet full of colour and vitality and my work is a representation of these qualities. Within my practice drawing has always been a main focus as I enjoy working with immediate mark making tools such a pencil, pen and paint. Recently I have been exploring ink as my chosen medium because of the freedom it allows me and the unpredictability of the result. The ink is only aided by water or a slight tilt of the paper and yet it forces its way across the surface creating its own unique pathways, shapes and effects.
