Statement

For years I have been painting landscapes and have tried to push my responses to the environment that reflects my passion for the atmospheric qualities that weather creates.  Being out in the landscape itself is essential to my experience and recently I have been trying to respond more spontaneously,  enjoying the qualities of the paint.  This latest development, I believe is as a result of my MA in Printmaking. 
Whilst studying for my MA in Printmaking I spent many hours drawing in the study rooms at the Zoology museum in Cambridge, the Angela Marmont Centre in the Natural History Museum, London and at Cambridge University Botanic Gardens which resulted in my final project.
This work reflects my conflicted feelings inspired by the Victorian obsession with science and nature and their desire to harness and categorise it. Elements of capture and release whilst simultaneously enjoying the opportunity to observe in great detail have informed this body of work. I have played with scale, employing various intaglio techniques to create an installation of beetles escaping from their entomological cases back to the environment, whilst simultaneously playing with microscopic elements which would not be possible without their capture.
