I use paint, print and photographs, or a mixture of all three, to celebrate the colour, shape and pattern of the things which surround us in our daily lives. I started taking photographs during a childhood spent abroad in the Far East and Turkey, and I think it is this which has resulted in my preoccupation with colour and pattern, and the shapes and textures of utilitarian and decorative objects. Recently I have been working at the interface between printmaking and photography, making etchings and photo etchings of a variety of reflective objects, particularly silver and porcelain. I have also been experimenting with the glories of painting in oils, focusing particularly on colour and experimental palettes.
I studied at Stroud College of Art and at the University of the West of England on the Drawing and Applied Arts course. I have exhibited in Stroud, including in the Stroud Valleys Open Studios, and at The Guild Gallery here in Bristol.
