Finding Inspiration in the natural world

Natural forms, repeated patterns, hidden layers and the close detail of our natural environment, are what inspire me the most.

My work is a direct and personal, creative response towards what I admire about what I see.

In my collages, I try to indicate the layers within the landscape.

From a personal perspective, a traditional 2 dimensional representation, doesn't truly convey the abstract composition of our surroundings.

Using hand-painted fragments of upcycled, found papers, allows me to produce a more sincere abstract portrayal.

My collage gifts, are a natural progression away from framed work. However, the principal of building layers to alter a surface is the same.

Silver Artley Hare Jewellery is also based upon my interpretation of naturally occuring patterns,and shapes within the natural world.  I use flowers,  pods,  shells and found ephemera to create silver jewellery that captures the natural form in a moment of time.

Some silver pieces are made by applying silver slip to a depth which copies the form, others are created by making a mould,

and casting a direct copy in silver clay, or by tooling metal into natural forms. 


My Creative Journey

Some people feel confident with a glass in their hand. For me, it has always been, paper and a pencil. And my glass was always full, of paint water!


I am a mainly self taught watercolourist of over 30 years.

Recently, experimentation with mediums, techniques and mark making, has brought me to my current exploration into texture.


I exhibit throughout East Anglia with a number of societies and take my work to several fairs over the year. (please see my calendar)

I am available for demonstrations and workshops to groups.

Please contact me regarding commissions.
