My work is the study of light and imperminance. I use photography, screen printing, solar plates, or oil paints on treated metals and I print mainly using copper and zinc plates. I am studying the Japanese art of impermanence and I use industrial/natural randomised techniques to create work with traditional print and painting methods and materials. My work makes reference to the origin and technological use of semi-precious metals, exploring pop culture, De Stijl, abstract expressionism and our place in the landscape, mainly using composition, industrial and scientific techniques but also using traditional materials like oil paints and watercolours. My latest work takes inspiration from maritime communication.
Influences on my current body of work include Tacita Dean, Mark Wallinger, Tracey Emin, Ben Nicholson, Bridget Riley, Sigmar Polke, Anni Albers and Max Bill.
I studied Fine Art at Falmouth School of Art, specialising in printmaking with photopolymers. I started my own print and design company in 1997 that has been involved in many projects with arts organisations and government backed initiatives. I work in arts marketing on the isle of Mull.
I print, paint and design, and I teach printmaking workshops.
