I live in the heart of Suffolk and since moving here from London, I’ve been inspired by the landscape and the people I have met.
My first series of woodcut prints portrays life in a rural village, combining anthropomorphic imagery and representational landscapes. In the images, characters are portrayed as going about their daily lives with the artisit as a spectator. The work is inspired by British artists such as Palmer, Nash, Piper, Hockney and Spencer; continuing a British tradition of creating bucolic pastoral scenes.
My second series concentrates upon illustrating the stereotypes of the people that live in different types of homes in Britain. Each image represents a different letter of the alphabet and includes the type of housing and objects/ animals that reflect the tastes and class of the people that might live in a home like this.
