Plum trained in fine art at Gloucester, obtaining a first class BA with distinction. Plum has exhibited widely in the UK and won the Grant Thornton Travel Award for her work in 2013.
For Plum a starting point for a painting is often an experience of place. The work and its meaning evolves in the studio through the action of distillation and translation. Process and chance are a fundamental part of the process as well as utilising the often slow, indirect and multi-layered nature of memory. The work is trying to re...member something, perhaps through the freezing of time, to reveal something new about a subject as well as attempting to capture its essence or illusory nature.
