ARTIST INFO
My recent work refers to a distinct era of British culture and TV programmes and films – 1970s and 1980s educational programmes for schools, childrens’ films and public information films.  Much of the source imagery seems familiar, comforting, and yet it is also unsettling or eerie. It is these qualities I want to transfer to the paintings, which are impressions of a half remembered or imagined past, existing on the edges of memory and nostalgia where ideas of folklore, the unknown, the wyrd, science fiction and the supernatural are meshed together.
