Contemporary artist

I graduated with a BA in Fine Art at Central St Martins and studied Photography and Multimedia at the University of Westminster.
 

I started as a painter, working mainly with pigments on a large scale to explore ‘structures’ physically and metaphorically.  I continued to explore this theme through photography, gradually merging and blurring the two mediums.

I find the challenge of combining the immediacy of photography with the evolutionary process of painting inspiring and stimulating.

 

Through mixed media, I explore digitally manipulated imagery as an iterative process of constructing and deconstructing imagery. 

I combine a variety of media such as oil paints, photography and digital work and  produce originals as well as limited edition prints (maximum of 20).

As well as mixed media, I work with oils and pigments. My recent paintings are inspired by seascapes throughout the Essex and Suffolk Coast.  I have endeavoured to capture the changing impact of light and weather conditions across the landscape. My interpretations are abstract constructions based on combinations of visual and imaginary scenes.

I have exhibited in galleries across London (Tobacco Dock, Lauderdale House) and Colchester (Colchester Art Society & The Minories Galleries) Harwich (Essex Summer of Art) Mersea Island (Mersea Gallery, The Barn)

 

I work on commissions for corporate and private collections.

 

I am also an experienced art educator having taught and managed a range of Creative Industries programmes in Further Education over 20 years

I joined the Mersea Island Artist group in 2017
