About the artist
Contemporary Sculpture, Oil Painting and Printmaking.
My work begins with a personal experience, an observation or fact. Found objects, images, books, documentaries, news articles and ready-made materials inspire me. Found objects as used by Marcel Duchamp are particularly interesting as they have a history or signification attached which can stimulate memories in the viewers past, present or create reactions in viewers future experiences. I am fascinated by the rapid changes occuring in the 21st Century. In my work I aim to highlight and draw attention to changes in cultural identity and gender, mass consumerism, social problems and the planet changing enviromental issues we face. My influences include The Surrealist movement, Pop Art and the artists, Cathie Pilkington R.A , Bruce Nauman ,Louise Bourgeois I hold a B.A (hons) and an M.A in Fine Art from the University of Chichester. I live and work in the South Downs.
