"... often an element of peril or black humour in my compositions"
I draw on half-remembered childhood themes, creating images that encapsulate timeless fairy tales, archetypes, dreamscapes and magic in an attempt to reach for truths.
There is often an element of peril or black humour in my compositions; I draw using pen and ink in a stream-of-consciousness state, often without stop for hours on end. Each work is highly detailed and may take days to complete.
There can be multiple perspectives in a single image; some are realistic but the aim of the work has little to do with realism.
Selected works are re-created as limited edition silkscreen prints, working with a long term printing partner, iterating screens, inks and paper until the printed work and the drawing are perfectly aligned.
From these editions, I then select a set of prints in order to further explore the spirit of the image, using gilts and colour to produce a series of unique hand-coloured works.
