Celebrating the interplay of past & present, imagined & tangible, that which is lost & what remains


The work is an on-going process of repetition and refinement, finding meaning and significance in the performance and repeat performance of a process, not just in the making of a drawing but in the whole rituals of making it.

I describe my artwork as a ‘practice’ drawing, painting, making on a regular basis using different media and processes.

As the routine settles I find I begin to draw from memory of the previous drawing, each drawing being exacted with a slightly different expression from the last.

I purposefully work from memory which changes my relationship with the work each time I revisit the piece, each event of making is subsequently directed by the previous visit. For me as the maker, the drawings represent the displacement of the past into the present.

I enjoy celebrating the interplay of past and present, imagined and tangible, that which is lost and what remains.
