I’m a visual artist who paints and draws. I have a spontaneous, experimental approach to materials and subject matter. Using acrylic, watercolour and mixed media, painting is my way of reflecting on a place, event, emotion, idea or person. Using photos as a starting point, the resulting artwork may be representational or a journey into imagination or abstraction. My job as an artist is to figure out what painting and drawing can be, using my direct experience of the world and my interior narrative.
I’m inspired by graphic novels, expressionist painting, psychedelia, pop culture, music and doing crafts with my son. I have a restlessness, influenced by diverse subject matter such as goth/punk women, British 90’s rave culture, local landscapes, my domestic situation, stage magicians, and ideas of Utopia and the apocalypse.
