I have been working for many years now with two mediums - my own photography and acrylic paint. I am consistently drawn to images of texture, light and shadow and as a result my work is often quite close-up. I particularly enjoy the contrast between the apparent reality of a split-second photograph and the leisurely, textured plasticity of the paint.

Much of the work is situated in the landscape but not exclusively; I am often led by literature, as well as creating 3D pieces that may lead on to originate 2D works.

I completed my fine art degree at the University of Hertfordshire in 2005 and have regularly exhibited for more than 10 years. Early on as part of some 15-20 group shows (a number of which I organised with one or two fellow artists) then graduating to solo shows.

From 2009 to 2011 I held three shows at The Enid Lawson Gallery, in New Cavendish Street, London W1, then in 2013 at The Powerstation Gallery, Bankside, London SE1 and in 2015 at The Embassy Tea Gallery, Union Street, London SE1.
