“I moved to Southsea 30 years ago and was a printmaker for 20 of those. I then did a course working with copper and that’s when I fell in love with it. Copper is such a beautiful metal and can produce such a wealth of colours. There is real magic working with metal and fire and of course, the bashing is so therapeutic. The work I create is mainly of animals (lots of hares) small birds and large leaves. Southsea has a wealth of creative people and I’m lucky enough to work alongside them by being part of ” Created in Portsmouth” an annual art trail we hold. I also sell my work in a gallery in Boarhunt, Stansted Garden Show, and a couple of craft shows."
