My starting point is to lay down a base of chaotic marks and gestures using textured layers, a reflection of the seemingly random movement of people through life. Then I overlay a sense of order and control using measuring tools, graphs and sequences. These refer to my sketchbooks in which I record and create images relating to transcripts or music, sometimes mathematical equations which are used to write in a graphic way making marks that might be a representation of text, a form of hidden asemic language. Perhaps dots and dashes as used as in morse code or collections of letters and symbols similar to equations seen in algebra, or the notes in a musical score. More often though they are simple marks that are an interpretation of my own journey and a language that even I don't pretend to understand: a sort of stream of visual consciousness.

Head south on A377 from Barnstaple, pass through the village of Bishops Tawton and after 1 mile take left turn sign posted HALL/LITTLE HILL , 200mtrs on the right is a gravel parking at Quince Cottage.
