As an artist working in the landscape, my enquiry is into the act of mark-making, and how this connects me to a sense of place.
My drawings and prints capture echoes of personal and collective memories. Some of these have faded but still leave traces; some are re-enforced by repetitive action; and some are submerged, and perhaps still accessible.
Superficially very different, the coastal and urban landscapes I record raise the same questions for me. Resilience, transience, memory, post-memory. What we choose to remember, how we remember; and the reasons why we remember…
What I most want to say is “I was here, I witnessed this.”
