What I am able to offer is practical advice, tips and guidance about improving your skills and maximising your working space, even if it is small. My studio is the family living space, and I have ‘built’ a mobile working method, which enables me to tackle work of a medium scale on a variety of surfaces, using materials which are readily available.
In my current work I use acrylic paint, watercolour, inks, collage media, printmaking as well as using dry media. I reuse, upcycle and recycle a range of materials in my art work and I have encouraged students to develop the same ‘magpie’ approach throughout my career. Art can be made from anything and can be made anywhere, you just need the encouragement and courage to start!
