I have wanted to be an artist from the age of six and my life spent in Devon has been a rich source of inspiration!

For many years my focus was on drawing, but this was replaced with a practical need to study graphic design for future employment, and, later, to work in education.

Family commitments took priority, until 2011, when, as a mature student I gained a degree in Fine Art.

A return to drawing saw my practice evolve to more fluid styles of mark-making, as well as a keen interest in detail, with larger drawings looking towards abstraction.

Dartmoor Wilderness

Three years ago, I extended my practice to include printmaking; investigating local landscapes and being drawn to the atmospheric moods of Dartmoor and the compelling scenery in the Tamar Valley.

Tamar Trees

Through monoprints and collagraphs I build layers of texture and forms to create semi-abstract images that demonstrate open spaces and ancient land.

Dartmoor Ancient Land

For many years a desire to transfer some of my visual creativity into text has led me to write poetry and prose to produce handmade artist books.

DEEP within the

myths and old language and

ancient trees and well trodden byways and

past streams that have run forever 

over rocks whose silence speaks

of moor and time.

I am here.

I am LEAT

LeatHand-made Artist Book

My books are a perfect vehicle for my drawings, printmaking and poetry to collide and to communicate an alternative form of visual art.
