Tel: 07813 701 222
I am a trained mixed- media artist and designer with a practice spanning 35 years.I have made commercial art for clients in Film, TV, Opera in the UK and US, Regeneration and Public arts and the arts in Health and Education. In recent years I have discovered a new clarity of expression, and found inspiration in the abundance and diversity present in the neglected or overlooked places of rural Britain.
About my work
I am drawn to the quiet, unassuming elements of nature: seasonal change, new growth,and decomposition.My working methods are to forage and sketch ‘in the field’, and then to study and experiment for longer periods indoors. At present, my medium is primarily ink, which allows a vibrancy of colour and a certain tension of the surface area. I use acrylics for printing and imprinting on paper and cloth. I find an intriguing discomfort between the abstract and the drawn line, and I explore nature’s palimpsestic traces of forgotten histories and usages by layering images, drawings and line work upon themselves in a lattice or landscape of their own.
