My work has always reflected where I live, places I visit and journeys I embark upon. The texture, architecture, signage and structures of each new environment dictate the development of my artwork. I am based in the UK but spend many months each year in Andalucia where I have a large studio.
The mixed media panels start by building layers of texture and colour. These layers give the final price a history of building, taking away, and rebuilding with paint, thinner collage papers, moulding paste, and paint encrusted stencils until chaos is tamed….. My prints are either collagraphs made from textured plates with a very limited edition or monotypes; experimental one-off prints incorporating layers and using the same stencils I create for my paintings
I describe myself as an experimental artist. For me it means that I enjoy bending rules, inventing process and exploring layers of imagery. I am somewhat irreverent and always curious, always learning and always experimenting.
