My paintings are inspired by the natural world, be that botanical forms, an endless horizon, or the rugged coastlines of the UK.
Noticing shapes, patterns and textures, I attempt to capture, through the sensory medium of paint, the mood of the place or a moment in time. Using both Oil and Acrylic I predominantly paint on canvas. I paint intuitively allowing the painting to develop slowly but attempting to capture the energy or light. I build up layers in paint and drawn marks until a rich texture evolves and the composition is ready to be refined.
Having graduated from Winchester School of Art with a First Class Honours Degree in Fine Art, I was honoured to have been shortlisted for the National Graduate award and gain representation with London based art consultants Artiq. Exhibiting widely, I have developed a loyal collector base and have works held in both UK and International private collections.
