Artist and photographer
Extract of Interference II
Drawing, Multidisciplinary, Painting, Photography

My work ranges from representative photographic images of trees and plants, through to more abstract pieces based on colour; some purely aesthetic, others are driven by real world events. I am inspired by shape and form. The composition and aesthetic of the work — along with pattern, rhythm and texture — is key, regardless of the medium in which it is made.

I am often working on a number of projects at once, producing a body of work over time; usually over several months. I'm currently working on:
• abstract ink drawings, with marks and gestures applied in response to the background of the piece.
• editing and curating images from my photographic archive.
• a collaborative photographic project, the output of which will be a hand-produced limited run zine.
• I'm also exploring the generative art genre with work produced digitally from computer code. I'm interested in the patterns that emerge from bodies of text when the letters are replaced by colour.

Work from these projects, as well as pieces from older bodies of work can be seen during the open studios event.

My studio space at Bevere Gallery is open to visit year-round to see where and how I work, and view works in progress and completed artwork. I'm usually there three days a week but this can vary so do get in touch to arrange a visit, or just call in on the off-chance.
