Show More Artist Statement

I work from life, whenever I can. Painting people around me brings me pleasure. I paint my friends my family and my studio aiming to capture the time we spend together. Like my idol the Welsh painter Gwen John; I paint the same figures, often female again and again; usually reading. This has led me to take inspiration from previous artists who have depicted women reading such as Corot. From my paintings I make multi-layer screen-prints selecting 6-10 colours in the painting to reassemble the image. More recently I have combined the final print along with prints of the separate layers into artists’ books.
