I’m an artist who paints and draws. My work is inspired by feminism, popular culture,  music and human desires.

My paintings are expressive and vibrant, on paper and canvas. When making art I’m always hoping to express a feeling that can’t easily be put into words. I’m fascinated by society and the rules we make, our aspirations and our relationships. I paint from life, from found photos and from my imagination.

In 2013 I set up Urban Sketching/artist networking group Sketch That which has monthly meet-ups and an annual exhibition.  I have been exhibiting my art work since 2000 when I graduated from Leeds Metropolitan University with a degree in Graphic Arts & Design. I live in Leeds, UK, and I like cats. No, I love cats. And painting.

If you are visiting this blog as a regular reader and are wondering where all my writing and photos have gone – please head over to Patreon for my blog and Axisweb for my gallery. Thanks for your support! It’s been too much for me to keep writing both here and on Patreon and so I will now concentrate my writings over there. To keep up to date with news and thoughts you can also follow me on twitter or Instagram. (links above)

Cheers, duderinos!
