Artist Statement:
The paintings on canvas use mixed media and household paints which are worked into using acrylics, varnishes and mica powder. I use interference acrylics and metallic paints so the paintings change in appearance throughout the day in the different light conditions, revealing themselves fully only after some time. The paintings feature abstracted images from microscopic photography, often medical in nature, recent paintings feature Vitamin 'C" molecules. These images for me symbolise the fragility of the human condition, the constant cycle of life and science's attempts to interfere with this process.

I have collaborated with scientists on several projects, notably a Geneticist from St Georges Hospital in London, looking at cells through a microscope and at cell death and also a Neurologist from St Thomas’s Hospital, in London on a project about Encephalitis. This led to a series of paintings based on brain scans. Paintings from both of these projects were acquired by the Science Museum in London. Most recently I have been working on a commission for an Immunobiologist looking at demdritic cells. I enjoy developing links with the scientific community, in 2002 I exhibited at the Wellcome Trust's TwoTen Gallery and in late 2003 I am exhibiting my new Vitamin C Molecule paintings with Pfizer Pharmaceuticals.

A well as painting on canvas I use watercolour, digitally enhanced photography, etching, installation as well as other media as appropriate to the subject. I exhibit regularly in the UK and abroad and am happy to undertake commmissions, particularly for scientists who can share some of their knowledge with me.
