I am a visual artist, based in the UK and I have exhibited my work in the UK, USA, Switzerland, Slovakia, Ireland, Italy, France, Sweden, India and China. I have my work in private collections around the world.
My work observes modern day society and explores through painting, our complex relationships, transient nature and purpose within random moving figurative groups and our interactions within the space around us.
Inspiration and ideas evolve from events seen in the media and in society generally that evoke strong emotional responses in me. By further exploring and expressing these responses to current social conditions within the work, my creative voice starts to appear.
Perceptive observations of human behaviour, together with my own personal experiences, further enhance the emotive narratives of my paintings and often communicates a common sense of displacement, a question of belonging and relevance within our shared urban environments.
My process originates from drawing, photographic and observational studies of large public spaces where there is a continual sense of movement within the urban landscape. These studies enable me to abstract the essence of emotion, form, space and colour for the paintings.
Painterly mark making and a limited colour pallet helps evoke a further suggestion of mood and place, encouraging the viewer to personally explore and interpret the painting.
