Biography

" I am a painter and printmaker based at Trewarveneth Studios in Newlyn. My work explores movement and colour, noting the elemnts of the landscape before returning to the studio.

Some drawings are immediate, translating tone directly into line, and others will form the detailed and methodical lines of etching prints. Working with copper and photopolymer plates, the printmaking process is slow and considered. Each piece echoes the repitition of water, a meditative process of viewing balance and motion. Paintings explore simple brushstrokes and muted colours - highlighting the stillness and subtle details of the landscape. A hand-sewn line curves along the surface of canvas and influences the edge of the land or the border between sea and sky. The seam is the beginning of the painting, the piecing together and reusing of material that inspires what the image will become, and is often accompanied by a sewn line as the final detail of the piece." - Sarah Woods. My prints are largely informed by an obsession with line, creating repetitive marks whilst abstracting and refining initial observations. This is explored through paintings that are sewn and engraved, altering the surface and emphasising the materials used."
