"Over the years, I’ve experimented with many different ways of working. I graduated with a BA Honours degree in Fine Art Painting from Wimbledon School of Art before then going on to study on an MA in Fine Art Printmaking at Brighton. Following graduation, I spent the next ten years producing work entirely made from paper. After this, I concentrated on jewellery and ceramics however, I always felt a strong pull back towards painting - my greatest love. The joy of mixing and applying colour never seems to disappoint; it allows my abilities to sing and shine through this obsession and passion for colour as well as tone, texture and expressive mark making.
Whenever I was asked about the ideas behind my work, I would generally reply that it was all about the colour. Through my renewed love of painting the landscape, I began to understand it wasn’t just about colour but how colour is in turn affected by light. The narrative behind my paintings reflects the shift in seasons; from the sharp, spring light, filtering through freshly born beech leaves to the watery winter light which whispers across the vibrating golden vine at Great Dixter. All my paintings tell their own story and capture a moment in place and time. One of my unlikely favourites is the light bouncing off the crystal-clear water of the gravel pit in SW19 where it meets the softest edges of the malachite greens of Wimbledon common."
