My work is concerned with observing the connections between the natural and the manmade in a landscape, inspired by my setting in the South Downs and adjacent coastland. I’m interested in the margins where rural and built-up areas meet, mapping the human traces we leave behind and in the poetry of the mundane.
My research begins with walking, spending time, noticing, collecting objects I find on the way. Although painting remains at the heart of what I do, I am in the process of disrupting my practice, to find new ways of seeing and working; I am currently interrogating the aerial view and perspective it affords as a way to question what I see and to reveal pattern otherwise hidden or overlooked.
