Sometimes to record,
sometimes to unpack,

sometimes to express.

I'm a printmaker and painter, drawing inspiration from the landscape. Working from my studios in Bedfordshire, I give expression to thoughts and feelings that unearth themselves, often whilst drawing en plein air. I fill up my brain with shapes and feelings so that I can unpack them later in the studio…
 

I find the immediacy and spontaneity of monotype particularly rewarding, with one-off prints that lend themselves to painterly and intuitive markmaking. For me, it's the most exciting medium. I love the constant tension between the solid and the translucent - the fixed and the fluid - the intellectual and the emotional. This interest also lends itself well towards collage and paint.
 

I also believe in the importance of drawing in my method. Even non figurative art benefits from a solid grasp of an all too often overlooked aspect of the creative process. To me, the sketchbook is where you find the artist’s most honest response.
