PRINTMAKER PROFILE

ARTIST STATEMENT

I am a Derbyshire artist and illustrator based in Ashbourne, and an art and design teacher. I studied printmaking at Chelsea College of Art and I now work in a range of media including combinations of drawing, painting, digital imaging, printmaking and photography.

At the moment, I’m particularly interested in ‘fashion’ as a metaphor for the confusion and anxiety that we feel about our ‘selves’, our ‘appearance’ and the world we live in. The images inevitably start to explore ideas about ‘fitting in’, ‘belonging’, ‘seeking approval’, ‘standing out’ and more notably, the sense of ‘disorientation’ felt by being pulled in so many different directions.
