I am a painter who works between figuration and abstraction. My work is concerned with themes of touch and interconnection, sensation, imagination and the otherworldly. 'A Series of Noisy Protests' are rampant exotica for the walls. My intention was to capture a sense of abundance, delicacy and perfume, to consider the essence of a flower, their character, life force, power and fragility. The paintings are loud and blousy and fly in the face of constant dispiriting news about the state of the world. They are imaginative interpretations of flowers I've grown and received, informed by the flower paintings of Odilon Redon and Piet Mondrian and visits to the Wallace Collection and National Gallery.
My work has been exhibited in the UK, Cyprus, The Netherlands, Greece, Romania, Russia and Mexico. I studied painting at Turps Painting School (Off-site) and Camberwell College of Art (BA), Fine Art at Slade School of Fine Art (MFA) and Art History at UCL (BA). In 2020 I was short-listed for the John Moores Painting Prize. Exhibitions in 2022 include Ways of Seeing Green (May), What Remained (June) Cyprus, BLINK Room Share 3 (Sept) and Swamp Legend currently on show at Patchworks, London.
