I trained in Fine Art and have been a professional artist all my adult life. I draw and paint from nature and it is this passion that informs my mosaic work.
I became interested in mosaic through the work of my mother, the mosaic artist Marjorie Knowles. I assisted her on many of the commissions she made over the twenty years she worked in this field.
I am inspired by the figurative mosaics of the Roman and Byzantine periods as well as by contempory mosaicists. I position myself in relation to this tradition but am always developing the form of mosaic, exploring and experimenting with new media and techniques.
