I am a visual artist, based in the UK. I have exhibited in the UK, USA ,Switzerland, Slovakia, Ireland, Italy, India and China, and I have work in private collections around the world.
My work observes modern day society and explores through painting, the complex relationships, transient nature and purpose of random moving figurative groups and their interaction within the space around them. Examining and incorporating the effects of current social conditions, creates a narrative within the work and by expressing a personal response to co-occupying the space 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.
