• Doodling at school under the desk… funny to see their influence still coming through!
  • Drawing with pencil, pastels pen and charcoal of course but more unusually with a laboratory dropper and inks – love that
  • Watercolours – often very wet and fluid… sometimes incorporating raindrops!
  • Inks – same. I could mention here my delight in preparing the first layer with inks etc worked and moved with clingfilm
  • Some oils but as I’m often on a walking trip they’re not so practical
  • Acrylics
  • I also love sgraffito often in combination with torn and layered paper
  • I also make prints e.g. solar etchings which involves transferring an image to a light-sensitive plate, etchings onto paper and plaster.
  • I also make lino-cuts, drypoints, monoprints, stencils and collagraphs using metal or card as plate and using burnt plastic, tile cement and sgraffitio as well as the more normal relief.
  • I love making my own paints from soil pigments.
  • My ‘constuctions’ are various e.g. stone carvings, plasterwork, installations using fibres such as silk, sisal, sheep’s wool and found objects.
