welcome to my world

Since graduating, I have continually challenged my work and practice, and set expressive goals for myself; usually, this is about conveying feeling to the viewer. I use abstraction as a medium for this, and I am particularly interested in mark making; how this affects the viewer. My work is often described as emotional and moving which is what I set out to achieve.

It is the British landscape that inspires me and has always been my muse. I do not want to depict it I want to express it; by conveying the feelings, I have for it. I endeavour to paint my feelings and not what I see!

Because our lives are made up of millions of tiny moments, both positive and negative. They appear and disappear triggered by a word a moment in time a colour a place a smile building layer upon layer. This is how my paintings are built layering and glazing the paint influences the paintings final outcome, each layer building a picture of memory and experience. Each work is a conversation between me and the materials when in progress and then between the finished piece and the viewer who brings their life’s experience to the work

I endeavour to express a feeling of place with colour and marks to create work that has the ability to be felt by the viewer and not deliberated upon.
