I find it hard to pin down things, to freeze the moment. I prefer to think about things becoming rather than being, remaining in a transient state. Appearances for me are hard to capture – as Herman Melville says in Moby Dick: ‘It is not down in any map; true places never are’. Watercolour suits this approach; it permits nuance and ambiguity. It treads lightly, never forcing itself on the world or the viewer. There’s a sense that every image is provisional, one answer amongst many possible answers to the question of appearances.
I graduated in BA Practice and Theory of Fine Art from Chelsea School of Art in 2005.
