Artist Statement


My work is concerned with the body and its environment, the contrasting ephemeral and insistent qualities of these entities and the tensions between them. I try to express the feeling within a particular space or moment and I want to pull the viewer into that.

I primarily work with drawing, book forms and printing processes including etching, relief and screen. However, I also use photography, painting and installation and often consider the impact of an idea expressed through different media.


was made  a few years ago to try and capture the feeling of free-fall, limbo and  lightness. I feel it also communicates something of the nature of space and time travel that most of us   experience at every moment. Moving through our lives with  accumulating stores of emotional and body memories to cross-reference with the ‘here and now’.
