I choose art because image making has the power to violate boundaries. It can be in two places at once: inner and outer, personal and universal, real and imagined, located simultaneously in the present and the past. It also offers the possibility, like music, of an immediate synthesis of thought and emotion, of both a physical and felt space, blurring imposed divisions between what is seen and imagined, observed and remembered, in a direct expression that can be both poetic and literal in the same instant. I am continuing to explore a personal visual language that always leads me into this borderland territory.
Biography: I am primarily a painter, but also work in film, installation and sculpture. I originally graduated in English, Drama and Art and taught in London for several years. I returned home to Wales, where I am currently based, and completed a B.A.(Hons.) degree in Fine Art in 2003. I have exhibited in both Wales and London, most recently at 'Fresh Art' 2003. I was selected for The National Eisteddfod,( a showcase for Welsh Art), in 2002 and won The Welsh Artist of the Year(student award) in 2001.
