In 2014 I moved from Lancashire to Cornwall. After visiting Gwithian beach and being struck by the beauty of the rock face looking out towards the Atlantic, I began painting in a new way. 
I love exploring the close detail of cracks and colours in the coastal rock. After gathering inspiration, I come home to my studio in Townshend and recreate the treasures I’ve found on a much larger scale. Sometimes I include tiny pieces of pottery I’ve collected from the ploughed fields and streams near where I live. 
I mix pigments and plasters and sand down the textures to reveal interesting lines and shapes. Some of my work contains natural pieces of mica that catch the light and I enjoy using Moroccan Tadelakt and Italian Marmorino plaster made from limestone and ground marble. When I sand back the layers new details reveal themselves and it excites me as though each piece of work is alive in my hands. 
"Many will remember her first, Gwithian Rocks, held there two years ago, acclaimed at the time as a promising debut, the works in her current show more than fulfil that promise, and should not be missed. 
In every sense this is an impressive show. 
As appealing as it is accomplished.”
