An idea for a project grows from a flash of connection. It seems to pervade my thoughts, writings, observations and then into making work.
I can immerse myself in a concept for a very long time, trying to resolve it visually. It is like trying to scratch an itch pervading my bones…Words take on added significance too and I find that writing contributes to the flow of working.
Titles are hugely important to my process and are nearly always there before I begin making.Mark making is key to the way I work; ink, graphite, paint, scratching through layers and abrading the surface.’
