The borlotti bean thief slips away

Mr & Mrs Basic and their pet hyena

My work is concerned with emotion, with memory and loss. It is the ethereal instability of both memory and emotion that has increasingly come to influence my painting. The basis of my practice is shaped by my visual diary, which in turn is shaped by my life. I update it daily – a random, unpredictable record of the day’s events, left raw and unfinished.
I embrace various materials and techniques including printmaking and sculpture. I do not try to control or restrain my process of working. I have no desire for perfection or neatness. I prefer an unvarnished approach where things are allowed to develop. Apparent inaccuracies become embedded in the work much as they do in life.
