Statement

My work is about light. I use exposures, like photographic transparencies, either in photography, screen printing, solar plates or on metals. I use natural light as my main exposure source. My work makes reference to the origin and technological use of semi-precious metals, exploring pop culture, De Stijl, abstract expressionism and our place in the landscape, mainly using composition, industrial and scientific techniques but also using traditional materials like oil paints and watercolours. My latest work takes inspiration from maritime communication.
Influences on my current body of work include Tacita Dean, Mark Wallinger, Tracey Emin, Ben Nicholson, Bridget Riley, Sigmar Polke, Anni Albers and Max Bill.

Biography

I studied Fine Art at Falmouth School of Art, specialising in printmaking with photopolymers. I started my print and design company in 1997, which has been involved in many projects with arts organisations and government backed initiatives. I work in arts marketing on the isle of Mull.
I exhibit nationally and my work is in private collections. I print, paint and design, and I teach printmaking techniques.
