Artists Statement

“Representation is not my main concern, but rather at the undercurrent of emotions connected with the experience of shape, form and colour that loosely convey the essence of subject in abstract form. 

I work intuitively and respond to the innate qualities of materials and mediums by layering, excavating and manipulating surfaces, searching for harmonious combinations of textures and forms that emphasise the process and physical presence of the work”. 

 

My involvement with printmaking has influenced many aspects of my approach to painting especially in the making of

various surfaces for printing and making stencils. Other experimental techniques have also narrowed the boundaries where the two disciplines seem almost indistinct. 

Paintings and prints are shown both regionally and nationally and are held in corporate and private collections in the UK, Australia and Chile.

Corporate collections include: One Aldwych Hotel London. TELOS Partners Windsor and Helen Green Design (Interior design)

 

Exhibitions include:

Gallery and group shows in London, including RA Summer Exhibition. The Royal West of England Academy. Cork Street Open. Gallery 27 Cork Street, London . The Mall Galleries NEAC.  The National Print Exhibition. 

AAF Battersea London, and The Business Design Centre London.
