A LITTLE ABOUT ME...
Having spent over 25 years creating and designing brands both big and small for large businesses worldwide, I decided it was high time I started creating my own little works of art.
My design background informs and influences all of my work, from a love of composition and visual space, to the energy and freedom of abstract line work. Ideas always start with drawing, using a variety of line weights, with the negative space as much a feature as the positive. I enjoy exploring the textures created by different printmaking techniques based on these original drawings.
At the moment I'm exploring the use of plaster in printmaking. Inking and casting intaglio and relief plates has achieved exciting results which I am still experimenting with and developing.
Each cast is unique, adding individual form and texture to my drawings, enhancing the original by creating a 3-d effect that is far more interesting and rewarding.
This November I’m really excited to be launching RubyKite Arts & Scarves, a new “Art to scarf” brand that I have created together with textile curator Joy Leese. We have limited edition prints on pure silk and cashmere scarves, wraps and accessories; beautiful statement pieces that stand-out as truly original.
The brand launches at HANDMADE Chelsea, Kings Road, London and is on show 8th to 11th November 11am to 6pm.
My next show will be at the beautiful Farnham Pottery, where I will be showing with The 6 Artist Collective. We'll be open from Thursday 21st November to Sunday 24th from 9.30am to 5pm. We have a private view on Wednesday 20th
6-9pm. Do come and join us for a drink while you browse.
I also sell my "little works" privately and I'm always happy to welcome visitors at my studio by The Thames. Message me if you would like to pop by.
