Biography

My practice is primarily concerned with painting but has also included video and collaborative projects. I am currently working with images from the website of institutional buildings which relate to my own autobiography. I am interested in the locations both virtual and real where private and cultural memory coincide. Past projects have involved collaboration with a weaver 'Techniques of Memory', curatorship 'Fabrications, Painting and the Decorative', and inclusion in artist research, 'Pearl Street Projects' in New York. I am currently chair of Paint Club East which is an Arts Council supported organisation for the professional development of painters in the Eastern region.
