ARTIST STATEMENT

My practice seeks to explore the varying complexities and simplicities of markmaking through painting and drawing. Within my work, I often blur the line between the two disciplines - this is particularly evident in my graphite outcomes which redefine drawing as a painting process. Mixing mediums to challenge the capabilities of materials is intrinsic to my studio experimentation and opens up further possibilities for my artistic enquiry. I choose not to be constrained by a predetermined visual framework, instead allowing the medium to establish its own aesthetic identity on the ground. I respond to the happy accidents which occur, ultimately creating organic, suggestive work which resonates with mystery and intrigue.
