My paintings have been exhibited nationally and I have been shortlisted for stage 2 of the John Moores Painting Prize twice. As well as developing my own studio practice I have worked in education as an art and painting tutor. I'm also an a community arts project 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.
