“I work mainly through the media of silkscreen printing, creating richly coloured and textured small edition and unique prints and mixed media works on paper. My inspiration is largely derived from my travels, in particular to India – a vibrant world full of life and colour. My prints are not representations of places, but contain elements from observation mixed with my own responses and experiences.
The process of silkscreen printing gives me the freedom to experiment with vibrant colour combinations and textures. I begin by printing areas of flat colour and then superimpose layers of textures and coloured marks. I have my own vacuum printing table in my studio at home, invaluable for printing small editions.
Bold and expressive colour combinations and the visual effects of colours very close in tone have always excited me. I am fascinated by the ways in which colour can be used to define pictorial depth, to create mood and evoke emotion.”
