I am North London based printmaker/painter. My work features landscapes, seascapes or horizons. Combining printmaking, mixed media and digital manipulation, I layer traditional and modern techniques to create fresh perspectives.
Having grown up in New Zealand, coastal and mountain themes are predominant in my work. With my home now in London, I am influenced by how man-made structures compete with the landscape. I feature the contrast between the strong, angular lines of architectural forms (usually brutalist/modernist structures) interacting with the fluid, organic backdrop of abstracted landforms. My recent work explores the world of upcycling, with artwork produced on found materials. This on-going series of mixed media works represent my concern with the increasing waste we produce, and the lack of consideration for the impact it has on our environment.
I am a full-time artist, but my design background is still apparent in the artwork I create.
