About me

I am influenced by modern day figurative artists, focusing on the process of painting and a desire for an unfinished final piece. I use oil, watercolour and pencil and like to experiment with any given medium.

My current focus is on memories and the importance of these in how they shape us as individuals.

My aim is to create art that is beautiful, unpretentious and that people will want to have hanging on their walls. I love all things creative it brings joy to draw and paint it is when I am most happy.

This project looks at the subject of memories and reminiscence, how we store them and the importance of these which became more prevalent in the last 12 months of lockdowns, not being able to see family and loved ones and a need to reconnect. I have used family photographs and film footage to create a series of paintings in oil and watercolours.
