'My work is mainly abstract in its development but very rooted in what I see and perceive. A variety of media is used, primarily 2D, but sometimes integrated into 3D. Through recent projects I have also been developing multimedia skills combining photographs of my work, with photographs I have taken, plus pinhole camera solargraphs and digital drawing. I have also done a little experimenting with making short videos.'
I have taken part, over the last year, in a few projects or seminars where there was a crossover with arts and sciences. Some of these were looking at aspects of space, the sun, and human understanding of these in ancient and modern times. I live in West Cornwall with an abundance of history and a great awareness of coastal borders, their strengths, fragilities and their histories. Also thinking about the effects of mining and agriculture on an environment, the negatives and the positives.
'A Beautiful Land' Eco print, dried flowers, and eco printing ink on khadi paper, developed during the 'Picturing the Landscape' project with Mayes Creative and Penwith Landscape Partnership
'Movement 1' Oil on linen. 'The first in the 'movement' series which is ongoing. These have a combination of an image transfer from the sun streaks in a solargraph I developed, combined with a drawing made in the 'Watching the Sun' virtual residency with Mayes Creative in November 2020. In this one the sun streak imagery is still apparent in the top right - this was transferred by an image transfer technique, using a photocopy of my sunstreaks.'
