My practice centres around print and photography as the primary mediums, with drawing as an accompaniment. I find that the various print techniques lend themselves well to different projects and themes. Ultimately the layering process, which is key to print, has become central in the development of the composition.

My prints are concerned with the notion of place and memory concentrating on the combination of past and present within one single image. My use of colour is predominantly monochrome incorporating the use of black, grey and white tones. The integration of the artist’s hand inside the image raises questions about the identity of both the person and place, and the significance of the landscape. The figures are essential as a representation of the trace of family in the place.

The ideas and work originated through an interest in personal history, taking photographs, making sketches and constantly investigating and re-visiting the landscape of my hometown.
