‘Places I would like to be….’

My work is concerned with the experience of being in … or sense of … a place or journey … real or imagined.

The monotypes do not seek to be physically accurate or describe anywhere particular, but are places that I would like to walk through and explore.

These are an outward expression of inner mark making, the footprints of past and future encounters.

Colour is very important to me as it primes the emotional nature of a piece of work. Through the continual application and removal of layers of paint I try to expose the essence of my memory and imagination.

Running alongside the colour, is a series of monochrome monotype portraits that hope to portray the power and vulnerability of humanity.
