A printmaker based in Cornwall, my work is concerned with landscape, place and society's increasingly uncomfortable yet expanding relationship with disposable culture and the waste generated by it. The takeaway food containers in the hedgerows and the plastic bags blowing in the trees.
I choose to print predominantly outside embracing rot, decay and mold as part of the process, as a means of subverting the traditional ideas and rules of printmaking. Enabling me to embrace the chance marks and focus on process rather than image and breaking away from the constraints of the clean white border.
I use repair as a means of strengthening and reusing failed or broken materials. Realising the potential and beauty in the discarded.
Alongside my own practice I teach Art for Wellbeing for Cornwall College, run community art projects and printmaking workshops.
