My work has a graphic quality and combines painting with printmaking techniques. The subjects I paint are all connected to personal memories or experiences.
A friend told me that my work feels like it is a memory of a good day, represented by one object. I tend not to analyse why I choose my subjects but I like the fact that they are are all linked to happy memories.
I associate food with celebrations or spending time with friends and family. I love the colour, shape and textures of food. It is fascinating how smell and taste affect the memory. Whilst painting the Retro Sweet series, the smell would transport me back to our local newsagents where I would spend my pocket money on penny sweets.
