My work is concerned with the fragments of memories which remain in our minds long after the experience has passed. Half remembered – Half forgotten. The ever changing Scottish environment is a constant source of ideas in my printmaking practice, whether it is a woodland, coastal or riverside location. The structure and drama of the natural habitat is always an inspiration. Using a variety of techniques including location sketching, photography and mono printing, I build up the images in separate elements for screenprinting process. This allows the development of my ideas, which are never a literal observation or translation, to be simplified in a manner which, I hope, captures the essence of the subject and a transitory moment in time.
