"There is something of the bog and shore that haunts: the sweep of fractured scarp and tilted seam of fossiled stone, brackish fern and peat moss, soft rush sward and the slow seep of dank bog pools resonate with archetypal curve and hue, making a familiar of these primal wetlands. Recalled from sensory memory these are inscapes."
I use mixed media to create collage paintings on canvas. Creative material may include oil, gouache and acrylic paints, inks, pastels, textured papers, fabric and natural fibres, metal, stone, wood and bone.
