Statement

My work draws on a range of sources; literature, philosophy, film, poetry and daily encounters. I have developed a cast of mainly female characters who I depict at work, in the park or lying in bed. In paintings and drawings I focus on my own experience as a way of understanding and exploring broad themes such as image, idealism and mythology.

I enjoy exploring new ways of using materials; oil painting onto cardboard, canvas and collage, monotypes printed onto painted magazine pages and line drawings made into books. This challenges my visual language and prompts new ideas.
