Artist Statement

Impermanence, transience, the potential of change and the role of chance in its origin and outcome are central themes of my work. Trace elements from the landscape serve as inspiration. In my most recent work subject and process have become inseparable: rather than document what has been, my mixed media monotypes give shape to change and are shaped by it in turn. Drawn upon, deconstructed, reduced at times to a line alone or built up layer by layer, the source image, whether photograph or plate, is the site of change. My interest lies in the dynamic interplay between residue and mark, evidence and response: clarity arrived at through chance and complication.
