As a starting point, I walk and make drawings of the estuary along the north banks of the industrial River Thames, these images are metaphors for change. Change is never more present than in the body of the River Thames, with its historical references, the relentless suck and pull of the tide, encouraging us to renew or reinvent ourselves. My use of colour and subverting of the painterly surfaces represents the harsh reality of life along with its tenderness and fragility.
