"My interest lies in the power to evoke disquieting and elusive moments with subtle nuances of hope- in the form of light that the richness and halftones of the mezzotint can uncover. Although I specialise in the mezzotint print technique I continue to paint ,photograph,draw and sculpt, defining objects as they are brought out of darkness, just as a thought would emerge from ones memory. I am an explorer of twilight zones and ambiguous spaces. Much of my recent work explores ambivalence - suspended - the struggle with insight and doubt, hesitation and commitment – the difficulty of existence. Moments of isolation and dislocation, stillness and silence where introspection and alienation are consciously engaged and interrogated."
