REVIEW BY MARK COCKER
Author & Environmentalist


ARTIST STATEMENT
In my mixed media works I explore surface, texture, colour, shape, composition and markmaking,
forming abstracted images through which I try to convey my experiences of being in the landscape.
After sketching on site, these images are created from memory, of places that I have visited and
journeys I have undertaken which are of special significance to me.
Although mainly based in Norfolk, my life and work continues to take me to parts of the African
and Australian continents while my particular interest in the formation of landscape also leads
me to locations which are rich in history, geology and myth.
I am not interested in simply recording exactly what is in front of me but in somehow revealing the
hidden truth lying beneath the surface - the effects of time, the elements and human activity
upon the land.
My pigments are sourced from the location itself, ground and mixed with acrylic resins to achieve
a variety of finishes. Layers are built up and scraped away almost like an archaeological
process of excavation.
