Ruin

Ruin

The Romantics included ruins in their work as a representation of the transience of earthly things. This image of a power station shrouded and disappearing in a dark and sinister mist, is also symbolic of our mortality.

Statement


Biography

  I  studied printmaking at the Cambridge School of Art and specialised in etching for my MA.  My prints are concerned with the country and the trees that surround me where I live in Suffolk.   I spend time on the coast and in the woods trying to capture the atmosphere of this special  place.

My work is now in private and public collections internationally, including the V&A in London.  The work continues to be  widely exhibited and has been selected (and sold out) three times at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.  

I also work in ceramics and create natural glazes using different wood ash.  I make a mixture of functional ware and also occasionally larger installations.
