"I am a visual artist living and working in the East Midlands. My practice is a personal response to objects and places using the medium of painting and influenced by print-making processes. I start with a formal approach using drawing and photography to investigate form, structure, texture and space.
Inspired by travel and encounters with new places, most recently I have been working within a theme of the urban, industrial and man-man landscapes. I am interested in the subconscious connections and relationships we make with things and places, and how visuals have the ability to trigger and recall hidden memories and tap into our emotions. Taking inspiration from my surroundings, I have a curiosity for architectural spaces, drawn towards unusual forms, patterns and hidden layers. In particular I like to draw attention to subtleties of the apparently insignificant, things that are taken for granted, overlooked, mundane and banal.
By deconstructing the landscape through a drawing process I am finding new ways of ‘seeing’ and responding to the built environment. This practical research then translates through experimental painting techniques, using a controlled approach, but with unpredictable outcomes."
