Artist Statement

I am a painter and printmaker documenting the landscape through mixed
media and re-working materials. My prints are largely informed by an
obsession with line, creating repetitive marks whilst abstracting and refining
initial observations. This is explored through paintings that are sewn and
engraved, altering the surface and emphasising the materials used.
Perception, reception and response are key processes in the translation of
the landscape. Reversing the use of materials and questioning the order of
the work inspires my practice and encourages an experimental approach,
stripped of material and methodical in process.
