About me


◆    ◆    ◆



I make drawings and paintings with a range of media, including images from newspapers, ink and spray paint. Disparate images and discordant patterns are often layered to create poetic landscapes. Travels in the middle and far east have had an enduring impact on my work. Recent paintings and collages use chinese brushes, ink and rice paper to depict the English countryside. I am interested in the aesthetics of 'shan shui' ink painting and the notion of a dialogue between 2 worlds; my paintings are a mediation between conflicting cultural forces at play in a given landscape, real or imagined, and seek to raise questions of occupation and displacement; in particular, to create a kind of multiverse into which the viewer can wander and get lost.
