Hello, just a few words about my practice and research...

I am an artist, researcher and lecturer in art and design. I take up and make use of a variety of mediums, which often merge, to explore the possibilities of contemporary drawing practice and its systems of authorship. My research is principally practice led and studio based. A recurring question is how new technologies impact on previous processes, in particular within the practice of drawing and its methods of tracing and how we can interpret, analyse and reconstruct new meanings of authorship. Main research interests are drawing, the history and practice of tracing, actionglyphs (the graphic motion supplements of comic books and animated films), printmaking, collage, postproduction, rotoscoping, embodied actions and the semiotics of two-dimensional motion representations.

    Hello, Just a few words about my practice and research...

    I make use of a variety of mediums, that often merge, to explore the possibilities of contemporary drawing practice and ideas of authenticity and originality. Oscillating between abstraction and representation and circumnavigating between processes of tracing and a notion of the already worked, my practice quotes a multiplicity of styles that focus on graphic strategies that reread, rework and reanimate precepts of image-making.
