Artist Statement

20 years ago I took part in the Wirksworth festival, exhibiting Pastel paintings of the beautiful Derbyshire countryside.

Before that I used to press or dry flowers from my garden and make pictures in recessed frames behind glass. I was also providing a service for brides as a permanent memento of their wedding day by pressing or drying flowers from their wedding bouquet.

Today I still want to be creative so I am pressing flowers and producing pictures, cards and gift tags.
