Encouraged by my tutor, Andi Noble, to translate the sketches into lino cuts, I did, et voila, the expo that you see today. I hope that you enjoy them.
I am intrigued by the private and personal stories that are suggested by these once-treasured objects and yet unsettled by their abandonment and disposal.
In my work I aim to convey emotional interest without sentimentality. Since I was a child, painting has been an important means of expression.
I've retained that fondness for candid portraits, while developing a liking for more abstract shots and in recent years, pictures of place.
