I work in a variety of media, including oils, inks and watercolour. My paintings, drawings and prints often begin with loose, expressive marks rather than with definite ideas of the finished work. Sometimes I am influenced by landscapes, the processes that produce them, or by the feeling of a place. In other works, it is the marks and motifs, the sense of space they create, and the process of making them that prompts my response. It is a bit like going on a journey with no set destination, even when depicting recognisable objects. I try to stay open to change and uncertainty until I feel satisfied. My works are a record of my experiences of making them, as well as the fleeting experiences of seeing.
I came to art professionally after careers at The Natural History Museum, the Royal College of Art and The National Archives in London and I moved to Bute in 2021.
