The images I produce are a direct response to the landscapes I draw of the surrounding area of Bath; they are concerned with the refinement of colour and image and the creation of space.

 I work from charcoal sketches using an unusual mono print method that combines textile and art processes as well as oil paint mono prints and other mixed media. The materials I print on are mainly hand made cotton and rag papers and card. Some of the images are made up of layers of 'one off' prints, creating a saturation of colour and some unusual surface textures. Through this combination of processes and materials I am attempting to communicate something of the experiences I have whilst being in the local landscape. 

Interpreting landscape through my work has been my main focus since attaining a creative arts honours degree, and textile design fellowship, at the Bath Spa University. Previous to my years of study I ran my own textile workshop, designing and producing hand painted and resist method silk scarves for the retail and wholesale market.Even though over the years my work has progressed and diversified from pure textiles I still find textile qualities integral to the images I produce.
