The poet-priest Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844–89) wrote in God’s Grandeur:

“The world is charged with the grandeur of God.”

My work looks to explore such excellence, grandeur and beauty, which so often inspires a response. The effects of weather upon the extremities of land are often variable and change quickly. I love the way in which wind, cloud and rain change the light and therefore the form of the landscape. Light in a landscape has become my predominant preoccupation. Light comes from above but so often appears to come from within the landscape, as though the land itself would speak. I respond to the world around me and art is one way I try to make sense of it. Many things inspire me visually, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually. Music, poetry, art and the bible are just a few of my other sources of inspiration, which you will see appearing in my work.

I was born in Hampshire and now live on the Wirral. I have a BA(Hons) in fine art from Bristol Polytechnic and a postgraduate certificate in art and design education from Middlesex University. I have been an art teacher at St Albans High School for Girls, head of art at Oswestry School, and since 2006 have been head of art at the Queen’s School, Chester. I have exhibited in solo and group shows in England, Wales and the USA.
