I like to draw lines for it requires a sense of rhythm and as it conveys a mix of discipline and freedom. In summer 2008 I drew “a line through the garden” describing different leaves and their surrounding shapes. At Christmas 2007 I made “name plates” for family members and friends. I cut the name line through wooden panels and painted the remaining pieces with a landscape suitable to each person.

In 2006 “washing lines” and the colours of clothes hanging on them captured my interest. In 2005 I cut a line around “Europe” and arranged to move the countries around a centre so they would have to face different neighbours. I am interested in borders: ‘What side am I on !’ ‘What side do I prefer to
look at ?’

In 2007 I cut lines to mark the distinct shapes of rocky caves in Sardinia and arranged these on painted panels rotating in front of the sea like background.

Over the years I produced many watercolours. The technique is a constant companion and challenge to me as it offers many unknowns, it invites me to experiment. These are examples of work between 1995 and 2005.

2000 – 2005 I illustrated various texts and produced posters for German writers reading at The German School in Richmond London. It was a new experience for me to understand and to interpret texts. 2005 I worked on shapes of leaves for my own work. I also became interested in animating scenes of a walk in Snowdonia.
