Statement

Artist Statement
I am inspired how we depict the movement and gestural actions of everyday life in the landscape and I use this to explore the relationships and the influences that they place on us. Often the work starts as a "real" place but through development, it becomes much less representative.

While researching this area I enjoy rediscovering my chosen materials, mostly paint, pastels and pencil, then testing their capabilities and how far I can stretch them under the guise of understanding!
