My practice has always revolved around printmaking, mostly screen printing, and is inspired by the memories and history embedded within familiar places and buildings; the human traces left behind in, and on, buildings, both the visual traces and subconscious and psychological ones. I’ve also always been interested in how the layering, and overlapping, of colours used in the screen-printing process relates to how the passing of time creates layers of marks upon the built environment.
More recently I have started to explore painting, and to re-discover my love of text based work and signwriting. The text on many of my newer pieces is inspired (or maybe provoked ..) by the situations that we have all been through in the last couple of years and where we find ourselves now – both socially and politically. The works explore the meaning and use of words by the media and government to influence, manipulate and confuse us.
