My work explores the essence of whom we are in the world as individuals when faced with trauma, whilst trying to keep a ‘dark’ sense of humour.
I graduated from the Slade with a HDFA in Fine Art Printmaking, exhibiting during and after education for a further five years.
After a life-changing event my work had to stop and I got a ‘proper’ job.
Skip to 2020 and my life was again changed but this time by a tragedy and I returned to my work. Since then I have participated in seven ‘live’ exhibitions and six virtually.
The process/medium I choose is as important as the subject matter. I like to make Woodcuts for its harshness and unpredictability, Linocuts for its skin like texture and the ability to be slightly more precise. Recently I have been experimenting with Collagraph, I like creating the surface, line making and selective ‘wiping’ that can give the print a ghostly, otherworldly feel.
