Wanderings in nature and ancient or personal mythologies provide many motifs. The process from mind to media can start with a photo taken, followed by design sketch, finding lines that please and building up layers of colour. Production is limited! I take my time - enjoying the making of each of these small paintings which aim to put a small story into a nutshell. Born in the UK, educated in Australia (BA Library & Information, University of Canberra), now home is between fields and a fjord in northern Jutland. Creative and crafting skills learnt at teachers' college, on courses or through long experience, have been essential elements in various projects in my working life, such as planning treasure hunts for families in the local natural and historical landscape (local tourist board), and co-ordinating book arts festivals at the Limfjordscenter. As part of the planning team for International Art Money Exhibition Thy 2012, I became interested in this small format and joined as an exhibitor too. Previously I have had artworks accepted at the Juried Autumn Exhibitions, Gimsinghoved in Struer, and in 2007 one of my mixed media works was awarded best work.
