Layers of polymer emulsion, often over 100 layers, are built up over many months through a deliberate process. Within these multiple layers, imagery emerges through the combined application of drawing, painting and printmaking. There is also a time-based quality to the physicality found in my work. Each piece is created over several months, using layers of polymer mediums between layers of mark-making.

I aim to fossilize, preserve and record each set of marks as a single event in the building or rendering of the portrait. By working across multiple pieces at one time, documenting and recording my experiences, memory and emotional responses to the subject means that what lies beneath is sometimes subdued or intentionally hidden. I am compelled by what might be revealed and obscured by this approach. These compilations, with imagery and text sometimes masked, develop over time. Marks made today require a response to the mark of yesterday.
