"At the root of all my art is drawing — it is always the start point and sometimes the end point of my work. I use photography both as inspiration for, and a complement to my drawing. Sometimes my images become an installation."
"I use a variety of materials: inks to give vibrant colour, oils to create delicate blends and graphite and foils to add light and movement. I particularly enjoy using translucent and reflective materials incorporating anything that captures my imagination."
"I work out of Commercial Square Studios in High Wycombe, a thriving community of artists in many disciplines. I have developed my individual approach through experimentation and innovation."
