Artist Statement

My work is inspired by the desolate and pure spaces of my rural Canadian childhood, and the landscapes of my home and heritage in the United Kingdom. I am moved by the strangeness and fertile dark world of myth and legends embedded in the landscapes surrounding my home in Gloucestershire and heritage in Pembrokeshire and Dunbartonshire.

I aim to resolve a closeness to both my Canadian and British homelands. I am interested in creating small work that is precious and full of secrets.

My work is crafted to hang independently of traditional frames. Paintings are stitched with wires and filaments forming integrated picture wires on reverse; richly adorned small objects that are ready to place on the wall.
