My artwork is inspired by living and working in possibly the most visually exciting cities in the UK: Oxford, London and Cambridge as well as growing up on the Kent coast. Influences also stem from my background in natural sciences: I love to observe, collect, sketch and make prints using flora and fauna that inhabit the fields and meadows surrounding my studio in Elsworth.
My images include seascapes, landscapes and urban imagery. The focus of the artwork is often on texture and its relationship with the subject matter as well as the play of light within the piece. I use a wide range of media such as collagraph, linocut, monoprint, drypoint, paints and inks-sometimes in combination and quite often experimentally modified to create a range of marks that excite me!
