Mixed Media Collage

ING Discerning Eye 2020
Living in central Cambridge, surrounded by its leafy parks and colleges, I am never short of inspiration. In the studio I explore these themes using collage, mono-printing, painting and image transfer techniques. Mixed media 'allows' me to combine digital technology with the physicality of paint, creating multi-layered surfaces. I am fascinated by the juxtaposition of photographic imagery with the loose, unpredictable nature of painting, resulting in new dimensions of unexpected colour, texture and sensibility.
Confined during lockdown, I began searching through old family photographs for new inspiration, resulting in an ever-growing body of work. It has given me great pleasure to bring these old forgotten photographs to life as part of a new series.
