Artist Statement

My studio practice is currently focused on creating small-scale tonal paintings and drawings from found imagery, photographs and film stills. They are produced by continuously removing and applying (usually) oil or charcoal on a variety of glossed surfaces to describe subtitles and drama in light and tone revealing emotional weight within an image.
My work depicts intimate spaces - often domestic settings and the progression of my work is generating more interest in the ambiguities of tone which can bring uncertainty to the reading of an image and question scenes that appear very familiar.
