Artists Statement From The Garden Studio Redditch Worcestershire
I prefer to work in series, producing bodies of work that are both connected and separated by process and content . My art practice began in the early 1980’s producing very time consuming photorealistic observations of people and animals initially for my own enjoyment and then by commission . I obtained qualifications in art and design in 2012 and a degree in fine art in 2015. My work is inspired by the creation of identity, memories and the discourse surrounding cultural difference and diaspora. Water and the sea are common recurring themes in my work.
