I am a visual artist, curious about how we as human beings are part of a dynamic and limited life system. Drawing underpins all aspects of my work as I seek to capture the mark that articulates the subtle nuances of behaviour, informs understanding and inspires insight in to the complexities of relationship and power.
I put myself alongside others in order to find points of connection; artists, students, farmers, politicians, travellers, whoever enters my view, taking cues from their world to extend the lexicon of my marks. That I have worked with people of all ages and ability enriches my studio work and extends my capacity to engage with new situations; conversely one experience benefits others so my studio work inevitably is shared with those I work with.
I use found colour, physical material and elemental forces within conceptual frameworks to create work that offers a response with full integrity.
My current work (2017) is an ongoing enquiry into the intersection of art and dementia.
