About the Artist
Much of my work concerns how we relate to one another as we make our way through the world. Some of the works hint at a potential narrative, while remaining open to the viewer’s own interpretation.
I make occasional forays into abstraction.. Underlying it all is my interest in human psychology and perception in particular: how we register, construct and re-invent our world with a mix of what is out there and what is remembered, desired or feared.
I am currently developing paintings, print and mixed media work inspired by the concept of the threshold – those liminal places where we are suspended between one place, time or state of mind and another. My work has been described as being akin to ‘snapshots from dreams’ and the figures which feature in them as ‘characters waiting to be given their lines.’ I imagine this must be something to do with my previous career as a drama producer and script editor.
I work in a range of media: screenprint, monoprint and digital. I often work in two or more of these media, going back and forth as the work evolves. I find that the fluidity and layering of this way of working is a good fit with the ideas I am developing.
My work is in private and institutional collections in the UK and internationally. In 2015, I was awarded the St Cuthberts Mill Award for a work on paper at The Discerning Eye Exhibition, Mall Galleries, 2015.
