My paintings have been exhibited nationally and I have been shortlisted twice for stage 2 of the John Moores Painting Prize.
As well as my own studio practice I work in arts education and as a community projects leader.
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.
