Describes self as: ’Maid of all works for efficient processing of junk, external and internal, through line and colour’
More succinctly described as mixed media congealer of compositions dealing with Power, Evolution, Sex, Death, Englishness, Puddings, Nature, Prehistory, Witches, Trees, Menial labour, Stately homes.
Emphasis on strong drawing skills collaged with layers of textures and super-natural hues.
The thread that unites all this is a struggle to illuminate uncomfortable mental furniture and rearrange it.
You still bark your shins against the corners, but at least it’s in ‘pretty colours’, and you can see it from ‘a different angle’.
