About

My work predominantly deals with surface, remnant, connection and time. I seek strategies to evoke a sense of connection to place and time, and to communicate a sense of tactility in each piece I create. Recent work has ranged from large scale oil paintings, to delicate graphite drawings through to dry pigment paintings. Most recently, I have been drawing pigments from nature. My projects follow several streams, with some series on glossy composite aluminium, some on paper, and of course on stretched canvas or linen. Whilst each series is quite different from the other, the binding themes are presence and absence. Whether it be attempting to evoke a memory from the viewer, or to connect the viewer with a moment, or a place; presence and absence are key elements in the work I create.
