‘Figure in landscape, landscape in figure’

I grew up in Sussex and Hampshire, where the silhouette and contours of the South Downs formed the backdrop of those formative years. The undulating lines, curves and textures became my visual reference. This translated naturally into the pared down imagery of the human form that became the focus of my work.

Materials and their unique features are a constant fascination for me and through exploring their intrinsic qualities, whether working with natural stone, concrete, glass, sand, metals or printmaking techniques, the choice of material is as important as the creative idea itself.

My recent work focuses on an interest in a more abstract sense of landscape imagery and a strong sense of the diversity and fragility of the earth’s surface. Drawing from its geological formation, strata and lines of erosion these are recombined to form new concepts that focus on these elements. I am also working on a series of prints that further explore this interest in texture and stratification.
