STYLE: My work-style is best known for its automatic expression and obscuration, which has evolved over the years from the early days of intrigue with literally blurring the boundaries with how people view art - always looking for recognisable elements to relate to. Later, with my experience of working as a design director with multi-national corporate clients, this offered me with the opportunity of commissioning art-works from artists such as Michael Craig-Martin, Julian Opie, Ernesto Neto, each artist providing unique insight and inspiration.
I am a contemporary artist living and working in East Sussex and London. My practice centres around printmaking, sculpture and installation. I enjoy the material processes in printmaking and visually, I'm fascinated with the circle - a form, symbol or shape that often feature in my work. An arts residency in China had a profound impact on my use of intense colours and luminous or iridescent pigments. In printmaking, I create abstract images that draw on the energy and movement within the printing process itself.
