I create artworks that bring beauty into your home or work space through energetic, colourful paintings that uplift and inspire.
If you are interested in purchasing or commissioning a piece please get in touch.
The inspiration for my paintings is eclectic, a mix of memory and recorded stimulus from my everyday life, using sketch/notes or photographs. I take these back to my studio as source material to use as starting points to expand on the canvas.
I improvise and experiment, alternating between thick layers of paint that obscure or obliterate parts, and reductive techniques of sanding back or wiping away. I usually work across different canvases in a series and allow the works to ‘talk’ to each other, what I discover in one will inform my next move in another. I welcome ‘happy accidents’ and balance this intuitive way of working with reflection and pause for assessment.
I live in London where I completed my BA(hons) in Fine Art and Critical Studies at Central St Martins. On completion I worked across different disciplines: video, photography, installation and sculpture. I also worked in main stream educational using the arts for emotional well-being.
Throughout this varied career I always maintained a drawing/painting practise. For the last 8 years painting has become my primary focus, and I continue to expand my skills and learning in this area, forever curious.
I intend my paintings to offer a resting space for the imagination, a window into another interpretation of the world, a place to wander and wonder.
