My ideas tend to be led by the materials I find, so I’ll start with an image, and randomly add other images until an idea starts to emerge, adding more pieces, paint, printing, found objects etc. to reinforce the final concept. Often, the initial image won’t feature in the final piece, but it’s been invaluable as a starting point.

I’ve been producing screen prints for several years and have shown them in group and solo exhibitions around the UK. All of the prints are hand pulled by me, signed and numbered, and printed on acid-free 300gsm paper. All of my collages are one-off originals and are signed and mounted on heavyweight acid-free paper”.
