Based in Bristol and Weston Super Mare, I draw inspiration from living in a coastal town that’s also near the city. I studied Fine Art in 2008, under the tuition of a Fine Artist who is highly respected locally and internationally.
After a strategic change in careers, from studying art to working in finance for the past decade, I have returned and reconnected with my love of art.
I tend to focus on light contrasts, mark-making techniques, layering, and scraping away to create abstract and non-formative artwork. I’m drawn to expressive, gestural art and free-flowing colours. I typically paint from the imagination, but it is based on something I have seen in "real life"
My work is fluid and I paint quickly. It changes over and over, which makes for an exciting process and hopefully leads to a more beautiful outcome.
The scraping and replacing of paint, reveal hidden colours and marks below the surface, which adds texture and depth. I believe art is a journey of process and reflection and that everybody has creative ability, there is no right or wrong.
My inspiration is also drawn from other artists, old and new. I always paint with music as I feel it helps my creativity flow. I use any medium, but acrylic paint is usually my weapon of choice.
