Artist statement

Bold Type (bəʊld taɪp) Adjective (Glaswegian slang): a cheeky, mischievous individual Noun: a heavy typeface used for emphasis

This collection celebrates the art of typography. In our social media lives we continuously take in streams of fonts and characters. How often do we pause to take in the shape and form of these marks which convey so much information. These acrylic paintings explore the abstract patterns our words create.

These paintings specifically focus on naming our surroundings: it helps us to understand them, to tame them, to bring order to them.
