Story telling is very important within my practise. I am fascinated by unearthing new stories and situations to take into my painting, alongside creating bold and intriguing imagery from narratives throughout my life. I like to keep my paintings loose and expressive, using fluid movements and textures to create engaging and lively pieces whilst thoughtfully leading the viewer to a chosen narrative. I rarely know what a painting will look like until I begin the process. Often I have used the canvas previously as a palette to create marks and mix colours unconsciously before it is used as the beginnings of a piece itself. This helps me keep the painting fresh and I especially enjoy finding the visuals often from the marks which were created without thought.
For the past 3 years I have been a member of London's Print Club. This serves as a great creative workspace to maintain and expand connections with other artists, as well as experiment with techniques and push boundaries of what screen-prints can be.
My ongoing dedication has led to various interviews surrounding my work and being featured in The Times by the art critic, Nancy Durrant, as part of her great art guide which has been both motivating and a great platform for me.
