Introduce yourself and tell us a little bit about your practice?
My artwork is based on research responding to the themes of landscape and migration and it is expressed through drawing, painting and film.
What are you currently working on?
"Landlines" is a new series of artworks that aims to embed personal emotional responses to the landscape; investigating their relationship through photos, drawings and watercolour painting.
“Water series" is an ongoing project which explores the nature of water, such as light, movement and sound, in a variety of locations.
The project consists of a number of films whose footage has been and continues to be taken during rural journeys. Some of the editing processes are in collaboration with other artists of different disciplines.
Do you have studio space elsewhere?
I have a studio at home.
What are your other (work) commitments if any?
I work as an independent art teacher and a course leader. The courses are:
"art nature and healing" with artist/counsellor Ann Rapstoff
“art on the move" art holidays in Greece
"art courses in Oxfordshire"
How does being an associate at Magdalen road support your work?
Magdalen road Studios provide a network of artists to discuss projects, be part of events, exhibitions and residencies and to socialise. It offers networking opportunities, which are important to me as I often work in collaboration with other artists.
What are you hoping to achieve over the next year?
In the near future I would like to complete the series of artworks under the theme of "Landlines". Through upcoming exhibitions I hope that my work will reach wider audiences and selling opportunities. I am currently working on three collaborative films which I hope to complete over the coming year. I also plan to start drafting an autobiography.
