Statement / CV

Making marks by hand (drawing) is the main focus of my work. I’m interested in human character, and how real people can become symbols of something else in other people’s minds. We have a view of people from history that may have very little to do with their actual lives. They can become like the cast of a film played out in our own inner life. Therefore, there has to be an underlying element of autobiography in much of what I do.

My work is currently on show at Salford Art Gallery and will form part of the University of Salford’s permanent collection.
