My landscapes are full of rich layers incorporating elements of historical textiles, fabrics, buttons, paper and text giving a sense of human belonging and the passing of ages, encapsulating a quality of timelessness and celebrating the lives of those individuals now passed. Through my landscapes I aim to capture the weathered surface, so much a part of our landscape, crawling mists, angled rain, stiff westerly breezes and pale summer sunshine.
During my Masters Degree I stumbled across ‘Wabi Sabi’ and the ethos of ‘beauty in imperfection’. This really captures my inspirations and the work which I produce; I am influenced by tactile aged surfaces like peeling paint on walls and fabrics which are threadbare but laden with memories and stories to tell. I like to photograph and record elements of trace, things that indicate a remnant or mark of something previous, I feel that these recordings come through in the tactile surfaces which I create.
I sell through galleries and social media websites and I am happy to be contacted to do commission work.
