I want to keep, the work powerful, fresh and vibrant. I make visual statements with bright colour and strong images.
Bright colours and strong themes, including the use of different textured paper to create a varied and interesting surface. The pieces evole from preliminary ideas and develop gradually.
Ideas are developed from the collages and photographs and I plan an interesting but simple way to lead the eye through the print.
I have been influenced by Dufy, Matisse and Patrick Caulfield among others.
