My goal is to experience the world and myself deeply. Making art and teaching art are some of the ways I have discovered I can do this. I am a figurative artist with a passion for the spaces we inhabit. I am interested in how spaces, big and small, man made and wild, real and imaginary and the way we exist in them define who we are.
Drawing has always been a way for me to meditate on the world around me and is the foundation to all my work. The slow act of observing, and responsive mark-making allows me to deepen my experience of a place or person or object. I use drawing to explore my subject, the drawing marks are the questions that tease out new answers. I love the way making a drawing asks me to be ‘still’ and ‘in’ my thoughts and yet requires a dynamic series of constructed, choreographic movements. My painting and mixed media work evolves from this process.
I have many works in private collections, have participated in group exhibitions and art prizes.
