Statement

I am a visual artist who explores notions of time and reality through fragments of memory. My goal is to encourage those who see my work to look for the unexpected. They might discover text incorporated within a print, or be left intrigued by my use of blended colour which can leave the viewer wondering what lies beyond what is immediately visible.

I am captivated by process - either by the layering of oil paint on canvas or by ink and paper through printmaking. The print methods I work with are photopolymer etching, lithography combined with film and photography. Sometimes working with alternative materials­ - perspex, aluminum, and wood - adds further intrigue.

I am DBS checked as I often works with children in a school or private workshop environment.  I act as a mentor to teenagers studying for GCSE and A level Art exams and I mentor new artists embarking on their own artistic careers.

Commissioned work includes many pieces for Addenbrooke's Arts.
