Perception is an integral part of my practice, I am curious and intrigued by the concept of communication and seek to visualise the invisible. Challenged and purposed to convey this I am inspired by the regeneration and back story of the Dishes on Goonhilly Downs, monumental steel structures, feats of engineering, dominating the landscape – a designated area of outstanding natural beauty of rare flora and fauna.
Printmaking and following in the footsteps of giants, physically engaging with the technique, process and materials is an evocative activity. Using photographic images, digitally manipulated, further re-visualised in true-grain, combined with other printmaking skills, I am able to create large site specific screen prints and etchings.

Painterly grounds and photographic screenprinting create a mix of process on a montage style visual image.
