ARTIST BIO

I am a painter and printmaker with a BA (Fine Art) and an MA (Art & Design, Studio Practice), both from Loughborough University. My formal education in art began fairly late in life as I followed an alternative career path designing software for pharmaceutical research scientists. I continue with some part-time user experience consultancy whilst devoting a greater amount of my time to developing my professional studio practice.

I find I am often captivated by the detail of my natural surroundings. The colour, texture and patterns that draw my attention are frequently to be found in my paintings as I try to capture the essence of my experience. Printmaking has broadened my mark making vocabulary and I enjoy the experimental aspects as well as the myriad of possibilities for combining techniques in different ways. I am happy to try and combine whatever feels appropriate to my needs and this has recently come together in the creation of a series of artist's books which include papermaking, photography, silkscreen printing, laser etching, caustic lino etching, and graphic design.
