My work explores concepts of time and communicating a sensory atmosphere of impermanence, of a transient moment that existed and now lingers as a memory. Using mediums of Graphite and Dry Point Etching, themes of Heritage, Journeys and generational links of the Family are manipulated to communicate how memory becomes projected and distorted.
drawing is central to my practice and I have been using parchment paper which allows me to layer up compositions and capture a sense of the transience of time. Through the semi-translucent material shadow imagery emerges as a visual representation of memory. A ghostly, melancholic feel is produced that processes a feeling of loss and grief.
The Language of drawing and mark making enables me to express something raw and immediate in my experience. I am interested in the use of drawing to respond to a site and explore how a space can be transformed through the immediacy and qualities of the media. On my last visit to my Grandparents house I became interested in how memory becomes projected and distorted. I have begun to explore this through the shadows cast inside and outside the house and the shapes formed by the buildings on my walk between my house and theirs.
Dry point Printing has become an extension of drawing and allowed me to play and experiment further with a sensory sensation. Repeating an image to create movement in the composition and fading ink, further explores the projection and distortion of shadow as a visual memory.
The Artpocket Postgrads had our end of year show at Anteros Arts Foundation in Norwich and was curated by our wonderful tutor, Becky Tough.

In September 2017, I started studying a Postgraduate Programme in Creative Practice with Artpocket UK, an independant Art School based in Norwich. The course is run by tutor Becky Tough who previously taught at Norwich City College. These images above are work I have created in the first term, using Collage and pencil rubbing, and exhibited in December for Artpocket’s Winter Exhibition. We made work inspired by the film, ‘All about my Mother’, by director Pedro Almodova. My work explores a narrative about the adoption of my Mother, with a sense of a missing story, and how she created her own story when she had her own family.

This year I am very pleased to have my work published in the Triratna Arts and Culture Catalogue: 2017
‘The Triratna Arts and Culture Catalogue is an initiative that aims to bring a broad selection of work in all artistic disciplines into contact with the wider Triratna Buddhist community. It hopes to shed light on the process of creating a Buddhist culture and society that is relevant and accessible to modern people.’
