About the artist

Contemporary, gestural oil paintings, studies, and drawings. Works based on nature, memory, and myth. Sizes vary.

Personal Statement

My work is about ideas of transformation. How nature can become otherworldly and take us to place of the imagination. Drawing from what’s around me visually and emotionally I hear the magnolia whisper in the spring light. I also look at fairy tale, memory, and mythology for inspiration. I also reference old masters in some works as well taking from a variety of contemporary sources. Sometimes a figure will emerge from the dense, entanglement of gestural marks or the abstracted painting itself will be a metaphor for the female, love, and loss. I use intense colour, dense vegetation to create these expressive works. In my studio and my home, you will see a variety of small and very large works on canvas and on paper. Sketches and materials will be available to observe. I hope this will be an enjoyable experience.
I have a B.A and M.A with distinction. I have exhibited widely in the UK and overseas.
