About my work

 

I take a thematic approach to my work, developing installations and exhibitions, working mainly in the UK and also in South West France. I often produce Artists’ Books and these are in collections here and around the world.

My working method  is to carry out intensive research, teasing out insights and meanings. From this research I will collect archival material, images and texts, using these to make new links between nature, environment, the past and the present, and relate this to human experience. 

I consider process to be as important as “final pieces,” because  a set or series of pieces is more interesting than a single item. There is never just one answer.

This narrative is a way of opening a discussion with an audience which is why I love to make Artist Books.  An installation or an Exhibition is like a book blown open and spread around the space.

Much of my material comes from working in museums and libraries, in nature and in the garden. I am a gardener. The garden is another world, very much like the human world in many ways.

Working across many media I produce printmaking, artist books, construction, photography or painted work, depending on the relevance of those media.

I am a keen collaborator and have curated shows including the work of others.
