The passing of time and transitory elements of the figure in motion and the change of light in the landscape links the two aspects of the work I do. Since 1976 I have painted and drawn areas of England and Greece. In 1990 I began recording activities at the Royal Northern College of Music linking Art with an interest in Music. In opera performances I can find the subject matter that I have a passion for studying – the expressive, moving figure and dramatic light and shade. I work by torchlight in the wings or in Front of House.
In 1997 I received the MAFA Bursary Award which enabled me to visit Warsaw in Poland, to study musicians at the Warsaw Philharmonic and Chopin Conservatoire. I am currently engaged on a long term project which has been directly inspired by the visit and the musicians I met.
