Experimental narratives in moving image, film & video, landscape & memory, relationships with (art) history.


I spent my early life in various parts of UK, Middle and Far East before studying drawing & painting at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art Dundee until postgrad in 1984.

Moved to London in 1987 - my first home was Acme Studios (now the site of Zaha Hadid’s Olympic Aquatic Centre) and then Delfina Studio Trust.

From the beginning of the 90s with the introduction of PCs in the studio environment my work tended to track the outputs that were possible... firstly screen-based works, moving on to print as resolution became higher, interactive pieces (until I realised creating multiple-pathways made the workload impossible for one person), and more recently video.

I have a strong sense that my video work is highly idiosyncratic and contains perhaps the same slippery texture as I have explored with oil and canvas previously.
