2016 - Prints 17 Images

Awarded a residency at the University of Hertfordshire for the 2015/2016 academic year, I have chosen to concentrate on printmaking, to make the most of the excellent facilities in the 2D workshop there. I am working on a series of prints based on a Holiday Homes theme. Some come from photos I have taken in Normandy while others evolved from images collected from magazines (In truth, they are not all really holiday homes). The season is finished. The houses are empty. The shutters are close...

In 2015, I explored the Landscape in my paintings, often based on photos taken as a passenger in the car passing through the countryside.

2013- Etchings 19 Images

As Artist in Residence ('aa2a' scheme), I had privileged access to the University of Hertfordshire printmaking facilities in 2013. I produced a large body of work, using aquatints, soft grounds and a variety of other experimental printing methods. These are all labour-intensive and I greatly enjoyed testing all these specialised skills to suit my vision.

Chairs 12 Images

November 2009: Oddly I feel attracted to chairs and the idea of "painting as furniture" (and vice-versa). Chairs are useful, ubiquitous, overlooked, banal. I like their graphic lines and the way they literally sit in space. They are suggestive of human presence and absence. I associate them with mixed feelings: work, rest, relief, solitude and meetings. What do you think?
