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.
The mixed media panels take their starting point from monoprinting onto canvas or paper, from this begins the process of building, taking away, and rebuilding with paint, thinner collage papers, moulding paste, and paint encrusted stencils until chaos is tamed….. My prints incorporate a range of techniques including collagraphy, carborundum and relief printing. In addition I have included rust by inventing a process of oxidising iron filings. By doing so I have created work that physically incorporates the environment it reflects, allowing it to play a role in the art itself.
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.
I enjoy sharing what I know with others have over 20 years of teaching experience. I regularly teach art workshops. Follow the menu for details and examples of students work.
