About me

I create contemporary abstract art. Living in rural Hampshire, I'm immersed in nature everyday; lost in the expanse of rolling hills or embraced and dwarfed amongst woodlands. Familiarity with these landscapes allows thoughts to wonder freely, the world outside paused, the senses and imagination start to connect to a world beyond what we can see. 

 

I begin my paintings with loose expressive marks rather than having any planned composition in mind, as I feel that in this way I am free to make more intuitive decisions about how the painting develops - what remains and what is hidden. This process of building layers means the painting can undergo many transformations, which for me this is really important in giving each painting a story of how it came to be, and the glimpses through to the layers below act as windows to its soul.  

If you are interested in any of my work, would like to purchase or find out more about where I am exhibiting, please contact me. I'd love to hear from you.
