“My abstract painting and prints are linked in that they are a response to story, text and life, although my prints have started to test the boundary and some have what may be perceived as a figurative element.

I respond to narrative which inspires powerful abstract images, has a vibrant impact on my imagination and has contemporary and personal significance. The narrative may be ancient or modern, factual or mythological – its power to inspire telling and personal abstract imagery is its relevance.

I make little reference to the text or to the personal ‘story’ in my titles. The prints exist independently as abstract images to be responded to as they stand.”
