Thank you to everyone who has been involved over the last two decades.
This website remains simply as an archive of some of the things we got up to.

Artist Statement

Reflections and memories can be unconscious, controlled, random, submerged, retrieved. Some have clarity: many are blurred and undefined, almost forgotten. Intertwined or dispersed they can become dream like or obscure ghost stories. They decompose and become the layers of remembrance.

Obessions with mark making and collecting detritus are informing my current work. Combining abstract and representational elements arising from the notions of death, decay and memorabilia, the process of the work is as organic as its influences. Nothing is pre-concieved. The work is often erased, covered up, reconfigured. One thing leads to another.
