I treasure the beauty of nature, people, battered old objects and unwanted rubbish, they all conspire in my mind to create a thought of what they could be together….and the results say it all without you having to say a thing.

My art gives me a huge amount of joy and I can get lost in it for hours, days or even months. I call it Light Art, not only because I use light but also to remind me and hopefully others to take a light hearted approach to life. My purpose is to bring humour, fleeting magic, a moment of joy, a smile or outright incredulity.

To assemble my creations I weld, sew, bolt, drill, screw, glue or simply fit together all of the ingredients.

I am based in Worthing, West Sussex, England. My work is proudly sustainable, being naturally sourced or reused / upcycled. Engineering and renewable energy are strong themes at ‘Light Art’ and my playful approach to sculptures attracts viewers of all ages.

My work has sold all over Britain and the world from New York to Paris, Athens and London. More recently Gutersloh in Germany commissioned her to create a sculpture for their park. This sculpture, Lotus III which opens and closes using solar power, will be installed in a lake.

Creating Outdoor Sculptures lit by renewable energy inspired me to create Worthing Light Festival. A stunning exhibition of art installations lit by renewable energy on the beach for 48 hours non-stop. 2019 was its 3rd year, it attracted over 10,000 visitors and raised over £24,000 from the Arts Council, Rampion Wind Farm and Community Chest to put on the festival – creating over 50 jobs in the process.
Below is a slideshow of work created over the last 10 years.
