About

I have always been fascinated by patterns and the ways they can be perceived and I investigate this through drawing. When starting a drawing I have a set of processes that I follow, however I can never be sure of the direction it will go so it becomes a voyage of discovery. Each drawing develops and expands in its own unique way.

They are not intended to represent any actual object but a physical process of exploration in the realm of pattern. Working in this way results in a body of work where each drawing may follow a theme but will have its own distinct character.

My printmaking starts in the same way but the drawings will develop further as dictated by the printing process applied. Screen printing allows overlaying of translucent and opaque patterns giving added richness and depth. With my digital work, I exploit the unique aspects that the software allows of multiplying layers and overlays beyond that which is achievable with a physical print process.

With each medium I am looking to apply it own distinct characteristics within the work.

I am a member of The Printmakers Council and Ochre Print Studio where I was Artist in Residence in 2011-2012 shortly after graduating in Fine Art BA (Hons) from University for the Creative Arts (Farnham)
