Artist Statement

In my work I construct allegorical settings in order to explore, comment upon and sometimes confront injustice and violence. Although my work has serious intent, I poke fun at myself and use humour, pathos and the unexpected to engage my audience. I have used a range of media, and shown installations, drawings and work in new media. I have produced work digitally, developing original material from my notebooks and drawing on the screen, manipulating and improvising my compositions on screen. Since moving to Brighton I have been able to return to making my own screen-prints, in which I combine autographic and photographic imagery in a process similar to collage. I have a background in state education as a teacher of young children and as an art lecturer in higher education. Now I work as a freelance artist-educator at Pallant House Gallery, having refreshed my own education, graduating in 2006 with a first class honours degree in Fine Art and the Anthony Amies award for drawing.
