About my Work

My work is an on going process that has changed dramatically as my ideas have developed.

I like to look into childhood memory portraying my faded memories in a materialistic concept.

I'm interested in texture, working with thick paint to create random imagery. I manipulate photographs to create new designs which I then develop on canvas by pouring gloss paint from various heights. 

The last few months of my degree (2007/2010), I have been experimenting with dried mushrooms and expanding foam to create unusual textures.

After my degree (2010/2014) I was so inspired by the use of colour that I experimented with this using parrot and birds as a concept. This collection was so successful that it has shown in several galleries.

As of spring 2014, I have started a new project looking at nature (flowers and plants), and the effect man made objects have on this. When I was at uni, I looked into manipulation of photographs to create a concept. I reviewed this and created some more manipulated pictures based on photos I have collected over the years. I then use this to make paintings or sketches and develop this further. 

I am using photos which has flowers or plants as the main theme and merging them with man made objects that compliment them. I am interested to see how man made objects have an effect on the environment.

I have been living near the New Forest for almost 15 years, which has also inspired my work. I like to paint and draw nature and the effects it has on day to day life.

I hope my paintings show these viewpoints :)


I believe everyone can paint, and that any forms of art is personal - Art should be fun.
