For me, Art is self discovery; a journey defined by the development of hidden and deliberate marks, using a combination of materials and methods.
In the past year my journey with Art has seen me venture out using new techniques. The introduction of marble as my base media has provided both considerable challenges and rewards. The marble enhances and provides contrast to the fine and characterful markings applied.
Nature inspires my work, the source of materials used, and the subjects drawn. The seasonal drama of our landscape resonates with memories of time spent in the far east. Winter, in particular, provides inspiration for the dramatic delicacy evoked in Japanese influenced work.
