My work explores the action of fluids and textures in paint and Cyanotype Photography.
I search for a light source which lifts the mind and spirit.
In Painting I create layers of strong colour exploring how each layer interacts as it dries and the visual effects of ageing, scraping away or washing over.
In Cyanotype I explore a sense of place through the shapes of wild plants and the memories and associations in nature, clothes and objects.
I am influenced by the 19century aesthetic movement, early photography and early abstraction.
