FujiFilm

These images combine a mono-print series created on a offset litho press, then drawn into with crisp lined drawing inspired by 1940s fashion. Fuji film was a prominant brand at this time and the style and relaxed feel of the drawn images reminds me of hot sun and holiday snaps.

Angry Horse

I find horses very beautiful and powerful creatures. Yet I am wary of them as they are so powerful and can be really dangerous.

In this series inspired by Chagall, the horse is a metaphor for love and sexual attraction.

Multi media paintings & prints.
I enjoy making big bold images combining printmaking, painting and drawing. I like colour, line, contrast, metaphor, series and narrative.

I trained as a fine art painter and use image to express my ideas, thoughts and feelings. I often created work around the theme of biography and much of my work has been inspired by the narrative of other's lives and how to authentically portray a life. More recently I have branched out into the practice of printmaking which has opened up new areas of expression for me.  I have returned to creating images as play, trying to shed the selfconscious and anxiety about a perceived audience. My work is now about the joy of making, serendipity and surface. Its unselfconsciously about where I am and where the piece takes me through the process.
