amalgamation of workbook drawings, memory, photographic prompts, Hepworth’s sculptures, collage, as well as influences from some of the St. Ives artists.

About

Some pieces start with the placing of two beer mats on a board. The beer mats determine to some extent what the composition might be, although references to drawings of boats and their interiors, Hepworth’s work and photographs play a part, as well as memories of harbours, beaches and coastlines.

I use colour to open up space or close it down, or to project certain shapes from the surface. The beer mats are subsumed into the overall scheme of the work. Colour is applied in thin layers to build up depth as well as history, and I attempt to compose works that have strong relationships of colour, form and shape, so things are altered as the work progresses. All my work comes from observation and I consider drawing to be the foundation of my practice.’
