As a Walking Artist, I draw from the landscape in a sketchbook and on my return create series of linoprints, silkscreens and handmade books.

Personal Statement

From studying Fine Arts at Camberwell College, University of the Arts, London, the philosophy of learning through making has stayed with me. My practice explores the dialogue between walking and drawing, seeking out landscapes from which I can physically combine disciplines to work across printmaking, drawing and bookmaking. Following a marked path gives me a connection to other walkers and opportunities to collaborate have transformed my practice: as a member of The Walking Artists Network, I joined walking marathons in Huntly, Scotland (2015 and 2016) ; participated in symposiums: Walking as Artistic Practice, Falmouth University, Landscape and the Sublime, Dartington (2016) and was part of Made of Walking, La Romieu:France (2017) and Akamas, Cyprus (2018) : gatherings of international artists, writers and practioners who all use walking as part of their practice. Using a small concertina sketchbook to draw in, the unfurling pages echo the undulating terrain and pauses along the path. On my return, I work fluidly from my sketchbook, dismantling the boundaries between distinct art forms to create new work. I am a member of The Sussex Guild, a group of makers who I exhibit with regularly and The London Print Studio where I print, edition and exhibit.
