I am an artist and illustrator living and working in Kent, South East England.
I have always been irresistibly drawn to the heartstopping beauty of the natural world - exploring the colours, patterns and intricate forms through paint and sculpture.
My current body of work explores the emotional and intellectual responses to, and interactions with, the landscapes we experience. We all have our own perceptions of beauty in our environment, and I am looking at the elements that make a traditionally beautiful scene really sing for me, in the context of unlikely places such as my immediate, city environment, and at how these two meet, and/or veer apart.
I am especially interested in my, and the audience's, part in that process: how my interpretation and depiction of a landscape can create another world, which in turn is further changed by people's reactions - stirring memories, evoking emotions, until the lines between real and imagined, past and present, become blurred and reality shifts.
I exhibit solo, as part of the Tonbridge Open Studios group, and formerly as part of the art collective '6328 Studio', in Brixton and Stoke Newington.
