I graduated in 2001 from Hull school of Art and Design with a degree in Fine Art and have been working in a variety of media for nearly twenty years. My work takes in impressions and memories as much as it does sketches and records. Contrasts of texture, tone, shape, and line interrupt the conversation between mark making and white space. I am always trying to return to places from my memory and the feelings that I associate with them. I initially work quickly, responding intuitively to the landscape, referring back to sketches. Paint is then built up in layers and glazes, whilst being wiped and scraped back with craft knives, paint rags and sprayed water.
I have exhibited widely in Banbury, Oxford and the Cotswolds. Alongside this I am a workshop facilitator, creative enabler and confidence builder who loves to help others find their creative path in life. I run classes and workshops throughout Oxfordshire.
