I am a 2D fine artist, predominently focussing on printing, painting and photography.
Starting with photographs, I take inspiration from nature: the interplay of sunlight; the formation of shadows & silhouettes, and reflections in water: from puddles to the sea. And the sky; clouds, dramatic and threatening, or light and insubstantial, creating a unique and limitless visual theatre. Other work takes inspiration from functional, man-made objects, beauty in the mundane; padlocks, keys, tools, bikes, books and tables & chairs. I am not solely attracted by the forms and texture of the objects themselves, but in the relationship between positive & negative, by their compositional qualities.
My etching, ‘Deal Pier’, recently won a Lowes Dickinson prize for printmaking and ‘Deal Pier, Cloudy Day’ was shortlisted for the Royal Academy Summer Show. I am delighted that ‘St Valery Treeline’ was included in the Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair 2019.
