Paintings, drawings, photographs and video

I am a visual artist working across a range of mediums and media.

My paintings, drawings, photographs and video express a fascination with the natural world and our place in it – the movement of light and air that catches the eye and maybe the heart.

Video work is akin to a moving sketchbook that informs my other work. These sometimes become art works in their own right.

I am slow-burn. Work ferments over months and sometimes years, so at any one time I may be working on a range of images. I like it when I am not sure what I am doing. Frequently this leads to failure as work passes the point of rightness and there is no return. I don’t look on things as failures really … It’s just the way things happened. Serendipity and synchronicity work both ways.
