My work is concerned with the poetics of vision. Playing with the rhymes of colour and the rhythm of marks I create abstract paintings that speak of the back and forth, the oscillation, the uncertainty of our sight. I aim to call into question the give and take between viewer and image. Weaving from painting to collage, to sculpture and back again, my work describes a lilting journey, both in process and image. Drawing inspiration from a variety of scenes and sources around me, and picking threads from a diverse crowd of other artists, my work is a rich montage; a shelf heavy with the mementos of travels; your pockets after a busy day in town.
My palette is English but my shapes exotic. My touch is feminine but my composition brutal. Throughout my practice I enjoy gluing separate things together. As an extensive hoarder of everything around me, I think of my paintings as collections. Collage and collections are inseparable in my opinion.
