Biography

My current preoccupation with repetition has led me to focus on Birds, the Sea and British Politics. These three forms allow me to play with and examine the use of repetition both as a device to present a message as well as an action to produce objects and images. This process can take up a year to complete. Predominantly using watercolour paper and newspaper cuttings, I construct, layer and collage to make pieces that contain humour and tragedy.
