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.  From this research I collect archival material, create images and texts and use these to make new links between nature, or the past and the present, relating this to contemporary 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.

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.
