Artist’s Statement & CV

I make prints, textile pieces and artist’s books inspired by Moby-Dick and Historic Arctic Whaling, and informed by my travel and research

Moby-Dick and Historic Arctic whaling are my constant sources of inspiration.  Working in print, textile and handmade book formats my exploration of the book led to an interest in the history of early British and European whaling.  Visits to European Arctic locations, UK,  European, American and Canadian whale and whaling related sites, museums and research centres have enabled me to collect source material to produce this personal visual response.  This has led to opportunities to produce work to exhibit in relevant settings, for example Burton Constable nr Hull and the Verdant Works in Dundee.
