I love the strong contrasts and tactile qualities inherent in etching and lithography, For me, printmaking is an extension of drawing, a fundamental means of expression and I see a clear analogy between the processes I use and my subject matter. My work is based on a series of journeys to distant places to study the natural environment and its wildlife. My most recent work is based on two specific locations : the most southern coast of Africa at Hermanus and the landlocked northern ainforests of Laos. Water is an important and re-occurring motif in my work. I am enthralled and excited by the energy and dynamism exhibited by its movement across the Earth’s surface. I like to depict waterscapes in a state of continual physical transformation, of stasis and flux, creating vivid juxtapositions of light and form, which reflect the rhythms and cycles of the natural world. I hope to convey the essence of the experience to the viewer, by stripping away superfluous narrative and allowing them to attribute meaning and relevance based on their subjective memory and experience.
