Artist's description

Much of my work is inspired by a 'Sense of place' and I work mostly, although not exclusively with coastal imagery. I use a digital collage approach, combining and juxtaposing parts of photographs I have taken to create an entirely new scene. I believe my work conveys a more intense sense of a place than I could possibly convey in a single photograph, and I enjoy the ambiguity of it as it sits visually between photography and painting. Being slightly surreal, it leaves space for the imagination and I hope to connect with the viewers own memories of the coast and other locations. I trained in Textile Design at the Royal College of Art and my love of colour surface and structure is also evident in the artwork.

I exhibit my work as original digital artworks in the form of limited edition prints, both framed and unframed. I offer three different size prints, all printed on Hahnemuhle archival cotton rag, with UV resistant inks. The smallest image size is 20cm square and the largest is 56cm square.
