Abstracted mixed media paintings, prints and drawings inspired by landscape, cities and interiors.
New York was my subject matter five years ago after a very inspiring visit to America. In contrast current work is inspired by a small area of Suffolk countryside, close to home. I've been drawing and painting using this as a source and find it endlessly inspiring. It changes constantly, weather, season, time of day and farming.
I trained at Glasgow School of Art and drawing has always been the base of how I start. I also have a good visual memory. With this subject matter I worked with charcoal, monoprint and paint. Small pieces and some larger work. Some work has become more abstracted but in all of them my main purpose has been to capture a moment in time combined with a sense of timelessness.
