STATEMENT

Curiosity about the spaces we inhabit is a thread which runs through my work and my passion is for using resonant colour to evoke a rich sense of mood and place distilled from personal experience. I use oil paint on linen canvas, screen printed layers of transparent ink one over the other on paper, as well as developing ideas through pastel and mixed media drawings. I'm interested in exploring how similar colours can come to have different meanings depending on their context and I work on each piece until it has a poetic life of its own. Travel and the unfolding adventure and surprise of journeys have been the basis for narrative series of prints where there is a story to be told behind each image. I'm intrigued by the horizon, and as a line in picture making, because it suggests that there is always much more to be discovered beyond it.
