      Artist Statement

      I practice as a printmaker, photographer, 'artists’ bookmaker (of a contemporary sort) and workshop facilitator in my own studio space. I have been involved with various projects, collaborations and exhibitions both nationally and internationally in Columbia, Quebec, Colorado, Australia, Paris and Edinburgh, Manchester and Glasgow.

      I now live in the stunning highlands of Scotland, whose celtic land I first encountered and connected deeply with as a child.  I remember being thoroughly delighted and intrigued by the bouncy, peaty earth in the forests and overwhelmed with the utter beauty and wildness of the landscape.

      I continue to carry these childhood passionate feelings and need intimacy and interaction with nature and wild open spaces: preferably snow covered or oceanic.  My lively abstract imagery is therefore a response to this.  I love it when random visual connections begin to emerge and they weave their magic within the fabric of my practice.  For me it signifies I am on the right path.
