This book catalogues a series of paper-based mixed-media collage pieces, created from 2005-2011, full of intense, contrasting colours set against gold and silver shades. In May 2012, this book was updated, to include several new designs.
I was born in 1959 and graduated in English/Italian literature in 1981. I am mainly self-taught as an artist, but did attend two two-year part-time course in the 80's whilst being subsidised by Margaret Thatcher's grant for government artists - the one in painting and drawing, the other in craft materials.
Since 1996 I have lived and worked in Hungary - mainly through Tesol, though I have also exhibited and in recent years, am once more devoting increasingly more time to the creative side of my life. These include working on larger mixed-media pieces using materials ranging from wax and polystyrene to glass fragments, smaller abstract mixed-media collage pieces on paper, and abstract drawings either in colour or in black and white.
