I am fascinated by the atmosphere at various locations on the Suffolk coast. Constantly in flux these places communicate an illusion of permanence which is undermined by the rapid erosion of beach and cliffs. This provides a shifting sensory experience in which the textures and colours fluctuate according to season, tide, time and the elements.

The works I create communicate illusion, through ‘framing’ devices that allow the audience to glimpse a moment in time that literally no longer exists.

Inspired by the work of Richard Long and Hamish Fulton, my engagement with the process of experiencing and making is reflected through my research methodology documenting circular walks through sound recordings, video, photography and writing. I interpret these responses through spontaneous charcoal drawings which are photographed before being destroyed. The images are then transformed using screen and digital print, as well as devore, to produce designs that embed layers of experience and memory through the repeated transformations of each image.
