Statement

Being  a multi-media artist gives me the freedom to choose from many artist ‘toolkits’, but the simple act of painting always took me back to my ‘beginnings’. Before moving from Kent to Cornwall in 2016  I spent many years working on multi-media collaborative projects with other artists, and enjoyed several public art commissions. I’d begun to paint again, too, and the move to West Penwith, with its uniquely varied, rugged and beautiful landscapes inspired my painting and lifted my spirits.But I’m a slow painter, and  restless in my search for a meaningful ‘subject’. The experience of lockdown has been liberating in some ways. I’ve begun to collaborate again, with like-minded artists, and I’ve begun to use my full ‘toolkit’ once more.  This year I’ve been exploring the immediacy and tactile nature of clay, and its potential to express some of the darkness of recent times.
