"The move then back north to Liverpool has been the most significant to developing a practice, the beginnings of activism, artists initiatives and the broader social, cultural and theoretical context to the work. I have tried to picture the idea of the changing city and read its social and spatial environments, attempting to establish a dialogue between the images, surface and signs of the city and contemporary ways of making paintings.
There has always been an important influence from literature and on literary narrative and obviously poetry, from when I was a student; many works are initially influenced by poems. I have always thought painting is a form of visual poetry, that there is something more to the image like there is something more that resonates through words and the look of the poem and the typography."
