Statement

I am a painter and printmaker. The luminosity and intensity of colour which etching offers both in single and multi-plate images is at the heart of my work where colour is an experience. My work is an exploration of the elusive territory where the mind slips between what is known and what is imagined. The starting point may be an illuminating text or personal experience but the intention is to take the viewer on an internal journey rather than to tell a story.

Statement

In my work, I am interested in exploring the interplay between shape and colour, and I find screenprinting suits my intentions as it allows flat, hard-edged areas along with a reasonably large print size in comparison to other print methods.

My prints are made using paper stencils, which effectively means that the editions are very small – 5 to 10 is about maximum before the moisture in the ink begins to break the stencil down. The stencils themselves are cut from newsprint using a scalpel; a process I find very satisfying and which I think of as a means of drawing by cutting into the paper.

I am drawn to the bright, synthetic colours used in manufacturing: colour used in car production, for example and (despite my prints being in small editions) I like the notion that screenprinting can be, and is often used as, a means of industrial production.

Background

I studied Fine Art at Goldsmiths and Liverpool College of Art
