I was already abstracting from mountain scenes and images I had taken to do with the mountain environment and skiing. I wanted to break this idea down even further and still look at mountain and ski related surfaces, and as I love creating textures and interesting surfaces, i knew the best way to do this would be MARK MAKING with load of different utensils and materials to break down the drawings and images even more. I was interested in the marks made in the snow, and i did a lot of photography based re search for nearly 3 years, going to the mountains and photographing certain areas and different slopes to see the different marks made. Again I used a broad palette knife to create smudges similar to that of the marks based in my imagery and re created them. I then was able to print on a chevron woven fabric which really enhanced the marks made by the smudges. I was really pleased with the tactile quality of this print and so happy to reflect the surfaces and fabric quality onto the mugs and trays and all the other different products that this is available in, particularly these placemats.

Texture and surface quality is also a huge part of my work, mark making, thick & thin, dark & light play a huge part in the image i am trying to portray. I have still wanted to capture the surface quality and affects and have them reprinted onto mugs and trays (etc) , because it just creates something exciting, edgy and quirky and a bit out-there! But that's what I love about my style, it is very different, its bold and hard and most of all REAL.
