My art is constantly evolving but almost always involves a photographic process. My images are primarily about pattern, rhythm and texture, and range from representational photographs of the natural world, through to abstract pieces; some purely aesthetic, others are driven by real world events.
My current interests lie with utilising Polaroid instant film to produce original artwork from iPhone photos and other digital files. I will have a number of Polaroid works on display. Polaroids have an aesthetic all of their own; slightly soft with exaggerated colours and a high gloss finish. There’s something magical about an image produced by a chemical process. The same image can turn out differently every time, and that’s part of the appeal — the unexpected and the haphazard means that every picture is unique.
I have recently finished exhibiting a new body of work – 'Off Grid' – made in collaboration with artist Karen Stone. Images from the exhibition can be seen as well as sketchbooks and notes showing how the work was made.
I also have a new series of work entitled 'uninvited guests' which consists portraits of the flora found in my garden. As well as prints, I have handmade cards and a 36page booklet featuring some of the plant and foliage portraits.
I work from a studio space at Bevere Gallery on the outskirts of Worcester and my studio is open year-round for visitors to see where and how I work, to view works in progress and completed artwork. Please get in touch if you’d like to arrange a studio visit.
