Personal Statement

I live on the fringe of Chichester Harbour - a tidal and dynamic backwater. The rhythm of ebb and flow, its quiet edges and marginal land are places of small daily dramas, dramas which reflect nature at work - shifting sand banks, changing foreshores, colonising trees, creeping reed beds, flotsam and jetsam, flood and mud. Man’s intervention over millennia - walls and ditches for land reclamation, causeways and quays for trade and industry, their histories, traces, remains and repurposing… all contribute to an inspirational area and an artistic obsession. With the aid of sketch books, notes and camera I seek to interpret these many elements then in the studio to instil them into my work. I use a variety of media and formats …. whatever seems appropriate.
