Recent work

For the past few years I have been sourcing most of my materials, and inspiration, from my immediate environment of sea and shore. I grind my own pigments from rocks and clays, mixing them with oil and water based media, and construct 3D pieces from local plants and recycled material collected from local beaches.

Lately I have returned to the bright saturated colours of watercolour paint, experimenting with new ideas and constructions, in both 2D and 3D.

A short video about my current directions and inspirations is available on the ‘About’ page.
