My practice highlights the way that process can steer and expand into other disciplines.

My Practice

Re-occurring motifs have developed into ‘shape-shifting’ personal worlds which are influenced by the environment and suspended in form and colour. Integral to my creative process is the exploration of both analogue and digital techniques.

Tools & Materials

The spare room at home provides a work space, I often use the printmaking facilities at Gracefield Arts Centre. Prints originate through drawing, digital drawing and collage, stencils are created and used to manipulate, layer and dissect each work. Through a constant re-cycling and re-working a way forward is found again, with both analogue and digital techniques.

Spring Fling Activity

Visitors will have the chance to see a range of new prints, paper sculpture, and digital drawings. Ruth Elizabeth Jones and I will also share our ongoing collaboration, Earthlight, exploring the relationship between tradition and technology in a series of ‘pairings’ combining ceramic forms, prints and digital drawing.
