My work is a response to organic forms and the ever-changing designs
created by light, movement and time.
This experience is translated through a range of techniques. My
exploration of both printmaking and painting allows each process to inform and
enhance the other. Printmaking techniques have a very strong influence on the
way the paint is applied, and often wiped away leaving a shadowy residue
highlighting the textures of the surface. Activation of the surface is an
integral part of my practice and adds to the diversity of mark and allows a more
spontaneous and confident mark to emerge.
Extensive use of layering in these works, emulates the natural processes,
shadows and subtle variations in texture and light and thus a complexity is
revealed in seemingly simple structures.
With a strong focus on shape, outlines and
shadows, natural forms are accentuated and abstracted to create interesting
compositions reminiscent of natural layering and evolving light patterns.
