My artwork, however meagre or plentiful always reflects my souls journey offering a map of my psyche with all its twists and turns, triumphs and uncertainties.

The artwork submitted this year covers a wide time span, varied media and subject matter as I seek to integrate many aspects of myself at this point in my life.

Rather than a technician my interest is in responses to Life whether in the flesh as in Life drawing or as an expression of a vague desire or longing. In this respect it can feel like connecting with Ancient imagery which abides within the Collective Unconscious and is somehow familiar to us perhaps through myths, legends and spiritual traditions.

Clay and brush offer very different opportunities, the physical substance of the clay connecting me with both my own body and the Earth herself , its forgiving character also allows details to be easily worked , whereas brush and inks invite a faster more spontaneous response echoing the eternal moment and ever-changing nature of life.
