My paintings have been exhibited nationally and I have been shortlisted for stage 2 of the John Moores Painting Prize twice (2004 and 2018). As well as developing my own studio practice I have worked in education throughout my career, both as artist-in-residence and tutor.
Currently I am involved in community arts and interior designs projects focusing on sustainable and creative interiors.
I’m a visual artist, focusing on process-led painting, mixed-media and interior spaces. My work is a celebration of colour, gestural mark-making, shape and pattern.
Although my work is not thematic there are often colours and motifs that I return to time and again- sometimes suggestive of real objects or places.
I tend to work on several pieces at once, building families of work that share common ideas and visual thoughts. Some work is completed quickly some takes months or years. I see the world around me as shapes and colours, offering endless visual possibilities that influence and inform my work.
