An English artist indulging my passion for landscape and pattern and attempting to capture a sense of a particular place.
Currently immersed in this huge writers' houses project that has taken hold of me and which happily combines my love of collage (recycling magazines) with literature, architecture, gardens and history.

All we like sheep ...
... is the name of a piece by Handel (I think), and I always have. Liked sheep, that is.
I'm the mad woman who quietly squeals with delight when I get back to England and pass my first green field of sheep on the train.
So I had these scraps left over from my Naples Letter collage and they were hanging around on my table top and rather than throw them away I made one of my miniatures:
Which of course led to me doing a larger one, the composition of which was based on a drawing I did ages ago of sheep in Edale, where I lived at one time.
