The central part of my work is involved in observing the human figure. The endless challenge of describing life and form through different media is both exciting and absorbing. In recent years my interest has also diversified into exploring light and space and how to harness these intangibles in their context to water, sky and masse.

In 2012 I started work on a series of religious Collagraph prints and this resulted in an exhibition in 2014 , the work is titled Hail Mary.

Much of my mixed media work involves the extensive use of collage where the use of random coloured shapes will often determine the composition.
