I’m a mainly self-taught, passionate mixed media and altered artist, with a passion for recycling, re-using and re-purposing. I recently started to make handmade art journals and even the covers are layer-painted! I have a real problem with neat and pretty – just can’t create stuff like that. I’m a fan of grunge, messy and frayed edges! I’d far rather paint it, burn, or melt it than trim it…
I inhabit a small and private world inside my own headspace. (I have trouble believing I’m now the wrong side of 50!!)It’s never too late to make a statement. One of my favourite sayings – “If your work speaks for itself, don’t interrupt.”

Happy to be here...

I found Red Bubble yesterday through a blogging pal… and have signed up. I’m so impressed with the quality of the site, what’s on offer, the range of art and photography… well, everything really! / What appealed to me immediately was the opportunity to share some of my painterly creations and put them up for sale, without physically having to print them out myself! I love…
