‘Places I would like to be….’

My work is concerned with the experience of being in… or sense of…a place or journey… real or imagined.

These unique monotype silkscreen paintings do not seek to be physically accurate or describe anywhere particular, but are places that I would like to walk through and explore.

These are an outward expression of inner mark making, the footprints of past and future encounters.

Colour is very important to me as it primes the emotional nature of a piece of work.
Through the continual application and removal of layers of paint I try to expose the essence of my memory and imagination.

I received a Distinction in my final year of an MA in Multi-Disciplinary Printmaking at UWE in 2004, taught printmaking for many years at Foundation and Degree level and now run workshops in water and oil based monotype in my studio, and at Spike Print Studio in Bristol.

I exhibit regularly throughout the South West, am a member of the Bath Society of Artists and RWA Artists Network.

Experimental drawing and mark making gestural imaginary landscapes. Letting off steam,interesting to see how they changed over the course of an hour!.

Taking advantage of the sun and clean gravel outside the barn studio to fast dry the first layers of these screen monos unusually for me working on top of loose charcoal mark making. I needed to see those hot pink and oranges! Now to figure out what they need next... ands to refine structure and balance composition. The joy of sunshine spreading around! . . . . . #silkscreenmono #gesturalpainting #colour #hotpink # orange#abstractlandscape #homestudio #havingfun #inspiration #handpulled #layers #markmaking #scraffito #contemporaryprintmaking ...

Two of my works on show at the Bishops Palace Wells ‘Re-Formation’ exhibition hosted by Heritage Courtyard Gallery. Somerset artists taking part were invited to respond to the Palace and grounds. Happy to be in this show, works include wonderful bronzes by Jason Watson paintings by Anthony Frost Rod Walker and assemblages by David Kemp all hailing from Cornwall. Lots to see in the exhibition rooms and gardens. Exhibition continues in the Gallery in Sadler Street
