About the artist

Chalk and oil pastel on paper and antique book pages based on the countryside, sea and the animals we spend our time with.

Personal Statement

I studied fine art at City Lit. I have always been interested in how we fit into our ever-changing environments with the animals we share our lives with. I like to think I'm working within the tradition of expressionist and post-impressionist painting whilst simultaneously exploring the limitless possibilities of form, seeking to evoke a sense of the colour, flow and power of nature and human interaction. I developed a love of mixed media and pastel painting in the fields and villages of the Loire Valley. I explore my environment through my art, both the textures and power of the sea and the way the elements interact with the animals and people who occupy it. I have a real sense of the artistic history of my family in France, America and England and how the influences of those different styles interweave with my own. I paint within the beating heart of that tradition.
