Statement

I practice as a printmaker, photographer, artists’ bookmaker (of a contemporary sort) and workshop facilitator in my own studio space. I have been involved with various projects, collaborations and exhibitions both nationally and internationally in Columbia, Quebec, Colorado, Australia, Paris and Edinburgh, Manchester and Glasgow.

My work is a lively, usually abstract interpretation of an interaction and intimacy with nature and open spaces, preferably snow covered or oceanic. I am inspired by John Cage to look at “all possibilities that could exist within the response, intention and structure of process and image”. When random visual connections begin to emerge they weave and interact within the fabric of my practice.


Biography

Following studies for BA and MA I set up studio and gallery space in Snowdonia National Park. During my time here I was awarded a 3 month residency at Engramme in Quebec city through WAI and CALQ. I also took on the voluntary position of chair with the steering committee for two years to create Helfa Gelf, open studios for Conwy county which is now a successful organisation offering artists all over North and Mid Wales open studios.

I have been half of Sam and Sue, a collaborative duo creating print and artists’ books in Quebec and the UK. We have facilitated workshops and collaboration with others in Scotland and Wales including being invited to participate in the Turn the Page, artists’ book fair.

I am currently part of 8international printmaking Bienaldouro exhibiting with them for this and last year.

My studio space has been fluid in these last years spending three years with WASPS in Glasgow, working in The Steeple at Newburgh, the studio provided through the Cromarty Arts Trust over winter 2014/15 and this last year at the studios in the Moray Art Centre.
