I am interested in the nature of story; the way it metamorphoses in response to time, place and personal telling. Common themes include folklore – particularly fairy tale, forest and childhood memory. Freud’s concept of the Uncanny informs my work – particularly the way in which memory surfaces in strange places and at odd moments together with theories surrounding ‘déjà vu’ and the relationship we have with ‘reflection’ – inner and outer. My practice has become multidisciplinary, reflexive and experimental, recently involving elements of repetition, mirroring and the use of found objects together with painting, photography and film. I begin by reading around an area of interest and then processing my thoughts and related memories while walking.
I recently gained an MA in Fine Art, with distinction from Hereford College of Art – not far from my home in Ludlow. Having grown up on the welsh borders, I also spent a short time living in Nairobi as a child with my family and then later, in my early twenties a few years in Manhattan. Solo and mixed exhibitions include MOMA Wales and Aberystwyth Arts Centre.
