statement

01/11/2018

My work is inspired initially by direct observation of the environment and the ever changing seasonal landscape.
Then by weaving together that which is experienced directly and that which is experienced through memory, myth or tradition.

I work in oils on canvas, egg tempera on gesso panels, watercolour, print, collage and mixed medium.
Drawing is important to me. Initially much of my work is directly observed and drawn from life, then ideas are developed further in the studio.
My sculpture uses found and made components, and I am working increasingly with ceramics, my interest lying with the simplicity of the earliest found pottery.
