I am based in Bristol and Weston Super Mare. I studied Fine Art in 2008 and have been learning ever since.
After a change in direction, 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 artwork. I’m drawn to expressive, gestural art and free-flowing colours. I typically paint from the imagination but it is sometimes based on something I have seen in 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. I am all about the bright colours.
The scraping and replacing of paint, reveals hidden colours and marks below the surface, which adds texture and depth. I believe art is a journey of process and reflection in whatever form that may be.
My inspiration is also drawn from other artists, old and new. I always paint with music (typically ambient Drum and Bass!) as I feel it helps my creativity and adds to the expressive flow. I mainly use acrylic and oil pastel. I paint on canvas, wood, cardboard and paper.
